BRONX, New York — A young New York Yankees fan was injured after being hit by a foul ball at Yankee Stadium Wednesday afternoon.

“She’s doing alright, just uh keep her in your thoughts,” the victim’s father said.

The father of the 2-year-old baby girl hit in the face by a foul ball at Yankee Stadium Wednesday, left the hospital with her older brother.

The little boy was at the game and saw what happened, but is too young to understand how much worse this could have been.

“He’s good. He’s a trooper. He’s happy they hit home runs today. (Does he even know what happened?) He knows she got hit by a baseball,” he said.
