Insanely scary moment on the MLB diamond Wednesday ... Reds star rookie Jonathan India was drilled in the forehead by a 94 MPH fastball, but thankfully, he appears to be okay.
India was at the dish for his second at-bat of Cincinnati's game against the Pirates ... when pitcher Chad Kuhl lost control of a fastball and accidentally plunked the 24-year-old in the head.

India immediately crumpled to the ground in pain ... and Kuhl got down into a squat in disbelief that he had just misfired that badly.
Miraculously, India popped up to his feet just a few seconds later ... and after a short talk with trainers, he stayed in the game.
In fact, India was feeling so good ... in the next inning, he made a hell of a play throwing out a base runner at home plate!!!
It was an awesome throw ... but it was even more awesome that the dude's going to be all right after all that.
