Young girl hospitalized by 105 miles per hour foul at Yankee Stadium

Young girl hospitalized by 105 miles per hour foul at Yankee Stadium

After a fan was hit by a foul ball from Aaron Judge in July, the Yankees released a statement saying the Yankees were "seriously exploring" adding protective netting.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after the game: 'You could see the concern on everyone in the ballpark. "Every stadium needs to have nets".

The Houston Astros expanded their netting to stretch from dugout to dugout. The girl was struck in the face by a 105-mph ball. the game's commissioner vowed to push harder for all parks to extend protective netting and the Cincinnati Reds committed to do just that by next season.

"I don't give a damn about the view of a fan or whatever it's all about safety".

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier and the Yankees' Matt Holliday were in tears at second base before play resumed.

Fans are also calling for the Yankees to extend their netting.

"I just wanted to cry for this little kid", he added.

The National Hockey League mandated safety netting behind the goals at every one of the league's rinks after a 13-year-old girl died when she was struck in the head by a puck at a Columbus Blue Jackets-Calgary Flames game in 2002.

'Mad Pooper' offered year's supply of toilet paper to turn herself in
Colorado Springs Police are asking anyone with information on the identity of the "Mad Pooper" to contact them. The family even put a sign up on their wall begging her to stop, but it appears the woman didn't give a crap.

"Didn't really get into details, I didn't want to cross any boundaries or anything", Frazier said Friday, a day after their "five- or six-minute" conversation. I realize that extended netting means there are more people looking through the nets at the game instead of having a "clear" view.

Stadium staff members immediately rushed to the girl's aid while concerned fans and players looked on. In July, the Mets became the 10th team to extend netting past the dugouts, following a NY councilman's introduction of legislation that would compel all baseball teams in the city to extend protection to each foul pole. "Hopefully, they'll take a look at all this and figure something out".

"You're telling me the little girl was on her cell phone?", Chris from Brooklyn asked.

"(Target Field) is probably one of the high end in terms of surface area that's protected, and I've seen it pay off", Molitor said. "Over the past few seasons, Major League Baseball has worked with our clubs to expand the amount of netting in our ballparks". "I still have a knot in my stomach", he said.

In 2015, all 30 Major League Baseball teams were urged to "extend netting 70 feet in each direction from home plate to the beginning of the dugouts", the Today Show reports.

"It remains an ongoing discussion in the industry", MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said Wednesday night, before a game in Seattle.

Dozier hinted that it will take the death of a baseball fan to finally convince teams to install nets, he said: "The last resort that we don't ever want to have happen".
