Falcons first baseman Spini out with injured wrist
Solano Community College first baseman Nick Spini, a freshman, broke his wrist during the home game against Los Medanos College on Saturday, March 10.
Spini received a Colles fracture while attempting to catch the ball, according to Alison Aubert, head certified athletic trainer.
Kelly Stairns, freshman from Los Medanos, was running to first base after his hit and collided with Spini.
Spini will be in a cast for about six weeks and is out for the season, Aubert said.
A Colles fracture is a wrist fracture of the distal radius in the forearm with dorsal (posterior) displacement of the wrist and hand, according to Wikipedia. SCC lost to the Los Medanos Mustangs 7-2.
