    Can a really hard hit to the chest create a blood clot?

    My brother plays softball and last year, he took a direct hit to the chest from a softball hit to him (he was pitching). It was traveling about 100mph. Three weeks later he had a stroke that the doctors have never been able to determine a source of.

    Is it possible this could have created a blood clot? He has been tested and has no blockages or anything anywhere else.

    Thoughts are appreciated!
