During the top of the second inning a female fan was struck in the head with a foul ball.
After initial treatment by PNC Park and Pittsburgh EMS personnel, she was placed on a stretcher, moved to a nearby ambulance and brought to the hospital for further treatment. She was conscious and alert at the time of transport, graciously thanking her caregivers while giving a "thumbs up" gesture to nearby fans.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her.
We will share additional information as it becomes available.
