Tolan’s 23-year-old son was shot in front of the family home on New Year’s eve, after local cops pull him over (wrongly) for driving a stolen car. The Tolans came outside to clear up the situation, one of the cops shoved Mom into the garage door, then started slinging lead as Robbie Tolan tried to get up off his stomach. One slug went through the younger Tolan’s lung and ended up in his liver.

It looks like Tolan will survive, but I suspect his baseball career might be over.

This sounds like a really messed up situation. Best wishes for a speedy recovery and justice for all involved.
