Baseball player chips his tooth during a game, accidentally (of course)

Interesting dental news in the world of sports.  Check out this article I saw.  Dental trauma during a sporting event is real and unfortunately may come at the most inopportune time.  Hopefully Aaron Judge saw his dentist for emergency dental treatment and was able to get his tooth restored.
