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.
