Sandy Leon stood there, with his right foot wrapped in a large, black boot and resting on a rolling contraption. Monday night, Leon suffered a high-ankle sprain in his major league debut after Headley plowed into him. Leon said he could return from the injury four weeks. Both teams agreed the play had been clean.

Headley walked up to Leon and extended his hand. Leon shook it. Headley apologized. Leon nodded and smiled. They chatted for a moment. Headley slapped Leon on the shoulder, and Leon said, “Thank you.” The moment passed. Headley walked away and boarded the bus.
