Child hit in face by foul ball at New York Yankees game
BRONX, New York- A 2-year-old girl was hit in the face with a 105 mile-an-hour foul ball at Yankee Stadium during a New York Yankees game Wednesday afternoon.
"She's doing alright, just uh keep her in your thoughts," the victim's father said.
The foul ball went off the bat of Todd Frazier.
Here is a video of Frazier after the little girl was hit.
