Gary Sheffield, Shea Hillenbrand Collide, Come Out

Yankees slugger Gary Sheffield was helped off the field Saturday by manager Joe Torre after hitting a tw0-RBI single and colliding with Toronto first baseman Shea Hillenbrand. Sheffield ramained motionless on the ground for several moments before rising and being replaced at first base by reserve Bubba Crosby. Hillenbrand did not appear to be as seriously hurt, but also came out of the game and was replaced by regular first baseman Lyle Overbay. No immediate word was received on the condition of Sheffield or Hillenbrand.
