Fan hit in ear by line drive
MILWAUKEE (AP) A woman was struck in the left ear by a line drive down the third base line in the second inning of the Milwaukee Brewers game with the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.
The game was delayed about 2 minutes after the line drive from Nick Hundley went into the first couple of rows near the photographer's well adjacent to the Rockies dugout.
Miller Park ushers quickly called for medical assistance, and the woman was assisted for about 8 minutes before being carried out on a sitting stretcher. Once out of the seating area, the stretcher was lowered so she was laying down and she was put into an ambulance.
No further information was immediately released.
The Brewers extended the netting at Miller Park before the season started to the inside edge of each dugout. Only Kansas City, Minnesota and Washington have netting that covers the entire length of the dugout.
