Another Baseball Fan Hit in the Face by Foul Ball
CHICAGO (AP) — A woman in the stands at Guaranteed Rate Field was hit in the mouth by a foul ball Friday night, but the Chicago White Sox say she refused treatment.
The woman was seated in box seats near the first-base railing, about 30 feet beyond the Royals' dugout. She was struck by a ball that skipped into the stands off the bat of Kansas City designated hitter Brandon Moss.
Ushers and stadium personnel moved quickly to aid the woman, who remained seated for a while. She did not appear to need special assistance or move for treatment, although she did hold a napkin to her face.
Meanwhile, after speaking with the family of the young girl hit in the face by his foul ball, the New York Yankees' Todd Frazier thinks teams should move quickly to expand protective netting at major league ballparks.
"I think 2018, that's too late," Frazier said Friday. "It should be up sooner than that."
Frazier spoke Thursday to the father of the girl struck by his 105 mph foul ball in Wednesday's game against Minnesota at Yankee Stadium. The girl remains hospitalized. Frazier said her father told him she is "OK."
