Crash injures Giants minor leaguers
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The San Francisco Giants say some of the baseball club's minor league players were treated for minor injuries after a traffic collision in Scottsdale, Ariz.
The crash occurred Tuesday morning when a team van collided with a car after pulling out of a hotel's driveway.
Team officials say five Giants minor league players were taken to a Scottsdale hospital where they were treated for minor injuries. By Tuesday afternoon, they were back at the hotel resting.
Team doctors plan to check the players over the next 24 hours.
The Giants conduct training in Scottsdale for their minor league teams. The club's major league team also conducts its spring training in the desert city.
The team says the minor leaguers were just beginning a three-week conditioning camp.
