Scare at the Ballpark

A young fan was taken to the hospital after getting struck by a foul ball during Wednesday night's game between the Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros. Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr. hit a line drive in the fourth inning into the field-level stands down the third base line, where it hit the girl. He immediately put his hands on his head and took a couple of steps toward the seats. He then fell to his knees near home plate and was consoled by teammate Jason Heyward and manager Joe Maddon. It took several minutes for Almora, who appeared to be crying, to compose himself and continue the at-bat. The girl was recovering in an area hospital. For more on the incident, click here.

Quite a Home
