Fan struck by foul ball in Chicago out of hospital


CHICAGO — The woman struck by a foul ball during Monday night’s game at Guaranteed Rate Field was treated at a nearby hospital and released Tuesday morning, according to a Chicago White Sox spokesman.

The unidentified woman was sitting in the stands just past the White Sox dugout down the third-base line and was struck by a hard liner in the fourth inning off the bat of Chicago’s Eloy Jimenez. She was bleeding around the head area and was covered with a towel. She walked up toward the concourse with assistance of stadium personnel.

She then was taken to Mercy Hospital and Medical Center.

“She came back here with her friend and picked up her car this morning,” said Scott Reifert, the White Sox’s senior vice president of communications.

“We’ve left a couple of messages for her — we always reach out — and we haven’t heard back.”

Reifert said he had no information about the nature of the treatment and it will be up to the woman whether or not her name is made public.
