|Fan at Sox Game Hit in Head With Line Drive
|CHICAGO (AP) -- A fan at U.S. Cellular Field needed medical attention after being struck in the head by a foul ball during the Chicago White Sox's game against the New York Yankees.
The man was injured when Curtis Granderson lined a pitch from Gavin Floyd leading off the seventh to the area near the first-base dugout. Spectators seated nearby immediately signaled for help, and medical personnel and security tended to him for several minutes before he walked away with a bandage on his head, still seeming woozy.
Granderson flied out and then re-emerged from the dugout, delivering a ball to someone in the stands near where the fan was struck.
