The toddler who was hit by a foul ball during a Houston Astros game back in May has permanent brain damage from the incident.
According to the New York Post, the two-year-old girl sustained permanent brain damage months after she was hit by a foul ball during a Houston Astros game in May. The family’s attorney, Richard Mithoff, said the toddler is at risk to have seizures and take medication to treat her condition:
“She has an injury to a part of the brain, and it is permanent. She remains subject to seizures and is on medication and will be, perhaps, for the rest of her life. That may or may not be resolved”
The extent of her injuries is similar to having a stroke as reported by her doctors. The part of her brain affected includes a loss of sensation, spatial awareness, and unresponsiveness. She also experiences night terrors and headaches.
A statement from the Major League Baseball said they will extend the netting of all stadiums that will protect spectators in the infield grandstands for the 2020 season.
