Braves Pitcher Hears Child Get Struck in Head by Foul Ball

There are few things in life more appealing than taking a young son/daughter to a sporting event, enjoying the outdoor air and the energetic atmosphere with a curious and wide-eyed loved one.

That makes it all the more horrific when a sporting event ends in disaster, as it recently did for one young Atlanta Braves fan.

The boy in question was in the stands behind first-base with his father when a foul ball was drilled directly into the stands, hitting him in the head before anyone was able to react. The impact was so drastic that the noise was audible to both pitcher Julio Teheran and Milwaukee leadoff hitter Carlos Gomez.

As anyone who has been in a baseball stadium can attest, only the loudest noises can rise above the background roar of the crowd.

Medical personnel were quick to respond, and they said that as they were treating him in the stadium, he was both conscious and talkative. They still transferred him to a hospital as soon as possible, however, to make absolutely sure that he was OK.

No further details have been released, but the Braves released a statement saying that the young boy was in their thoughts and prayers.

Braves pitcher Teheran, who was visibly shaken by the event, stated that it was scary for him, saying “I knew it hit somebody. It was a fast and hard. No one had a chance to get out of the way.” He also wished the best for the child, saying “if anyone knows him, please let him know I hope he’s fine.”
