Cubs' Albert Almora inconsolable after foul ball hits child

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Albert Almora was emotional after a foul ball he hit during Wednesday’s game struck a young child.

Almora was batting in the top of the fourth inning of the Chicago Cubs’ game against the Houston Astros and pulled a ball foul that apparently struck a child. He was shaken immediately after seeing what happened.

Kids fall in love with the game of baseball after going to the ballpark and experiencing a Major League Baseball game.

Almora did return to center field after the half inning. He spoke to a security guard in the area where the child was for an update. He was emotional and crying on the guard’s shoulder.

I felt what Albert and everyone else felt !!!!!

It wasn't his fault, but it didn't matter to Albert.

I dont see a lot of updates on the girls condition , which may be a good sign or a bad sign.  I think she will survive, but maybe there are some serious issues. 

They are going to need to extend the netting all the way down the foul lines.  Trouble is that will ruin a lot of views.

Not sure about that myself. These happenings are flukes of the game.

But.....let's hope they'll tell us more about the little girls condition.

Babies should not be brought to ball games.

For several reasons....and getting hurt by an errant ball or bat is one of them

If one does, at least sit higher in the stands anyway !

I'm not sure 4 year olds belong at ball games They dont really know whats going on and even if they do they dont care. But some people cant get baby sitters.

I took my kids to games when they were babies. It doesn't matter if they know anything about the game. They're out doing something with mom and dad. However, we sat in safer locations, higher up in the stands and more behind the infield or home plate where foul balls tend to be of the pop-up variety, not line drives. I also pay attention when the ball is being pitched.

You can do it. I did it. You just need to be smart and careful about it.

Completely disagree events like this are great family events, however I would support banning this childs parents from the park as they are obviously too irresponsible to protect and look out for their kids safety

That's awful. I pray this little girl will be alright.

It is for this reason that when I take my kids to the games, we don't get seats down the line where a line drive foul is likely to hit them if we aren't paying attention.

Almora needs to get his T checked before he starts lactating.

Why are you belittling Albert Almora?  He was afraid he might have killed a four year old girl.

It was an accident, suck it up or you are going to have to play softball.

Well, I'll give you this. If the ball had hit you or me in the head I don't think he would have had the same reaction. But he could see it was a very little girl.

He'd probably have run over and gave you mouth to mouth. So if you are done eating your Chicago dog at the park, do him a favor and chew some Altoids or mint gum. If he asks you to hold his bat, say no.

I doubt if anybody's laughing when they read your comments here. Do you make yourself laugh?

So you don't think I should introduce this routine at open mic night at the Chuckle Hut?

When my sons were young I took them to a lot of Red Sox games. Always sat in the seats behind home plate with netting in front and on top of us. Had a good view of the entire field with no chance of being beaned by a foul ball.

There are two local and semi local minor league baseball parks close to us.

In summertime my freinds and I go to games.

We always pay up to sit behind home plate and netting.

If we see parents with small children, we invite them to bring their kids to empty box seats, with permission of ushers if they are in places where small children can be hurt by foul balls.  

Sometimes with permission of parents and authorities it is OK to be the adult in a situation.

"Safety first prevents the worst".

P&AB.

P.S. Good and important article.

Pleased it was posted.
