Fan taken to hospital after being struck by Eloy Jimenez foul ball.
A woman fan struck by a foul ball off the bat of White Sox’ outfielder Eloy Jimenez at Guaranteed Rate Field Monday night was taken to a hospital for observation and is communicative, a Sox spokesperson said.
Jimenez hit a hard liner into the stands in the fourth inning just beyond the Sox dugout on the third base side. The woman was sitting several rows from the field.
She was bleeding around the head area, and was covered with a towel. She walked up toward the concourse with assistance of stadium personnel.
Jimenez put his hands on his helmet after seeing the ball go into the stands. Protective netting at Guaranteed Rate Field extends to the end of the dugouts.
