Baby at New York Yankees Game Struck by Foul Ball “Doing Alright” (Video)



Scary moment at the New York Yankees home game today.

This was very frightening, and it’s a reminder to us all of the dangers and risk that come with attending a Major League Baseball game. Take a look at this footage from the Yankees 11-3 win over the Minnesota Twins this afternoon.

A little girl, just two years old, was struck by a foul ball off the bat of Todd Frazier that was traveling at 105 miles per hour.

The New York Yankees later released the following statement:

“The child who was struck with a batted ball today was given first aid at the ballpark and is receiving medical attention at an area hospital. The federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, known as HIPAA, prevents the team from giving more information.  We will have no further comment at this time.”

“She’s doing alright, just uh keep her in your thoughts,” the victim’s father told ABC 7 New York.

The victim attended the game with her older brother, who is too young to realize the extreme severity of the situation. That’s a good thing.


“He’s good. He’s a trooper. He’s happy they hit home runs today. (Does he even know what happened?) He knows she got hit by a baseball,” he said.
