Five San Francisco Giant minor leaguers were hospitalized today after a crash near the team’s minor league complex in Arizona.
The two-car crash occurred this morning near the Giants’ complex in Scottsdale, Ariz., according to team officials.
Eleven players were in a passenger van going from the team hotel when the crash occurred. Bryce Bandilla, Adalberto Mejia, Dan Slania, Jeff Soptic and Kelby Tomlinson were taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries and were later released, team officials said.
The players were beginning a three-week conditioning camp at the Scottsdale site.
The Giants organization, including major leaguers, begins its spring training in Scottsdale in February.
