According to the wiki, the ball that killed Chapman made a sound similar to it hitting a bat, so the ball was fielded, and then thrown around the infield before they realized something was wrong.

And from personal experience, the sound of an aluminum bat forcefully hitting a human skull is a sickening thud...

NakedReporta: I don't see why, in an instance like this, play isn't immediately stopped so the injured player can be treated, and then the umpires allowed to make a ruling on baserunner progression. As a safety issue, I can't see how everyone involved wouldn't be on board with that. Happ looks like he's going to be OK, but what if the injury had been life-threatening?

Never actually watched baseball, have you?

Plays happen so fast in baseball, it was probably over before anyone realized what happened.
