Chicago Cubs player Albert Almora Jr. hit a hard line-drive foul into the stands at Wednesday’s game against the Houston Astros, striking a young girl.
The stadium in Houston was eerily silent and Almora was extremely shaken by the incident. The father of two children himself, he was overcome by emotion at the thought of hurting a child with his foul.
Luckily, we hear the girl went to the hospital but is doing well.
Alamora hopes to meet the little girl and have a relationship with her for the rest of his life.
