Being on the field at a baseball game has its risks, and if not, tell the Kelsey Wingert. The AT&T reporter is recovering after having been hit in the head by a ball during the ninth inning of the Colorado Rockies game against the San Francisco Giants.
“I took a 95 MPH (over 150 km/h) hit to the headWingert said in a tweet, along with a photo showing a row of stitches on his forehead.
Austin Slater fouled a ball off Rockies reliever Daniel Bard, and the ball hit Wingert, who spent five hours in a hospital, where tests revealed no fractures or internal bleeding. He said he “received internal and external stitches.”
Wingert was also hit by a foul ball in 2018, when he was covering the Atlanta Braves for Fox Sports South. She suffered a fractured right eye socket when she was hit by a ball from Odubel Herrera of the Philadelphia Phillies.
