It turns out foul balls can be more than just annoying, they can really hurt.
A woman in the stands at Guaranteed Rate Field viewing a White Sox and Royals game was struck in the face by a foul ball on Friday.
She reportedly declined medical treatment and could be seen holding a napkin to her face, according the Associated Press.
This comes days after a foul ball at a Yankees game reportedly struck a toddler in the stands, requiring she be taken to the hospital for treatment. It started a conversation around safety of the stands.
Twins were emotional about little girl hit in face by foul ball. Dozier said teams need to extend netting; Escobar angry at parents.
