BUZZ PLAYERS ZAPPED

Three Salt Lake Buzz players were knocked to the ground when lightning apparently struck nearby as they were playing golf at Riverbend Golf Course.

Shortstop Denny Hocking, pitcher Shawn Bryant and catcher Mike Durant were putting on the No. 4 green when a jolt of electricity struck.The incident happened Tuesday morning, but the three still were able travel with the team to Vancouver. Durant told KUTV that he hoped the lightning strike would add extra power to his game.
