By now, everybody in the sports world is aware of the scary incident that took place on Monday night with Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin.
During a game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Hamlin went into cardiac arrest and collapsed on the field before being taken to a local hospital.
The game was subsequently postponed.
But all around the sports world, athletes, coaches, fans, and analysts have expressed concern over the situation and have offered Hamlin and his family support during this difficult time.
Even in Major League Baseball, there has been an outpouring of support for Hamlin.
On Tuesday, a fan drove by Great American Ballpark, where the Cincinnati Reds had posted their own tribute to Hamlin on the jumbotron.

As of now, Hamlin remains in critical condition.
But this was a classy gesture by the Reds.
Hamlin may not be one of their own, but people all over the City of Cincinnati saw what took place on Monday night and understand just how scary the situation truly is.
Those who attended the game will remember the moment Hamlin collapsed and how Paycor Stadium fell completely silent.
The Reds clearly understand the magnitude of the incident and are doing their part to help the Hamlin, his family, and the entire sports world recover after Monday’s tragedy.
The Reds themselves experienced a similar situation back in 1996, when umpire John McSherry suffered a heart attack on Opening Day and collapsed on the field.
McSherry was later pronounced dead.
We can only hope Hamlin is able to recover from this.
