Here’s the latest on the traumatic event at the Yankees game on Wednesday.
The father of the young girl hit by a foul ball at Wednesday’s Yankees’ game provided reporters with an update at the hospital last night.
“She’s doing all right,” he told WABC-NY. “Just keep her in your thoughts.”
The father was asked if his daughter would need surgery.
“It’s too early to tell,” he said.
The foul ball came off the bat of Yankees’ third baseman Todd Frazier in the fifth inning of New York’s win over the Minnesota Twins. Players from both teams were visibly distraught. A couple of players were in tears.
Players and coaches from both teams expressed the need for something to be done to improve the safety at games.
“Either, one, you don’t bring kids down there, or No. 2, every stadium needs to have nets,” Twins second baseman Brian Dozier said. “That’s it. I don’t care about the damn view of a fan or what. It’s all about safety.”
