Last week we told you the horrific story of the two-year old girl that was struck by a 105-miles-per-hour foul ball off the bat of Yankees third baseman Todd Frazier and how Frazier—who is a father himself—was absolutely beside himself with concern.
Well good news on that story from—who else—Frazier himself who has been keeping in touch with the young girl’s father and reported yesterday that she could be leaving the hospital soon.
"We've been texting back and forth. He said she's doing a lot better," Frazier said yesterday. "He said the hard stuff is behind now and hopefully she'll be getting out, hopefully today."
Frazier plans to meet with the family.
"The father has been very gracious -- enough to call me and text me back," Frazier added. "We've been having a really good relationship so far. I've still been praying for her every day and hoping for the best."
Major League Baseball issued recommendations for protective netting or screens in December 2015, encouraging teams to have it in place between the ends of the dugouts closest to home plate. So perhaps something good can come out of this, as it will demonstrate to the country just how badly these things are needed. Of course, the most important thing to come out of this will be that little lady getting out of the hospital.
