Woman gets stitches after Taveras' foul ball nails her in face This is the perfect example of why you need to pay attention when you are at a baseball game. A women sitting behind first base took a foul ball on the chin from Willy Taveras of the Colorado Rockies.
She was checked out at the ballparks first aid station and then taken to the hospital for stitches.
This is why when you are at the baseball game you need to pay attention and possibly take a glove. Balls are coming off that bat extremely fast and have spin on them.
Major League Baseball does its best to protect fans, but it can't do everything.
