Fan at Cubs-Pirates Game Hit in the Head By Foul Ball

It isn’t exactly breaking news when a foul ball at a baseball game strikes a fan. Expectedly, it happens quite often. However, at tonight’s Cubs-Pirates game, a fan was hit in the head by a foul ball off the bat of Starlin Castro while trying to find her seat — behind home plate.

You can see the scary moment unfold in the Vine above.

If you’re wondering how this could possibly happen, ESPN’s Jesse Rogers has the details:

She was taken off by stretcher:

Fan taken off on a stretcher…game starting up again…hopefully it isn't too serious. 1-0 Pirates Top 2
