At Wednesday's Yankees-Twins game a freak accident sent a toddler to the ER.
Todd Fraizer was at bat when a 105mph fastball fouled off his bat and smacked a toddler in the stands, right in the face. Fans faces turned to terror as they realized what happened. Fraizer even fell to a knee because he couldn't believe it.
“I thought of my kids. I have two kids under 3 years old and I just hope she’s all right,” Frazier said later, according to The Associated Press. “I know the dad or whoever it was that was with them was trying their hardest, but the ball’s coming at 120 miles an hour at them and the ball’s hooking. So it’s like if you’ve never seen a ball like that, which most people in the world haven’t, it’s very tough.”
The little girl who was struck was rushed to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital and according to ESPN, the father said it's too soon to know if she'll need surgery but she's doing "all right".
What a scary moment! Really reminds you how fast life can change. This literally happened in the blink of an eye, even too fast for the parents to react. Praying for the little girl.
