VIDEO: Boy Smashed In Face With Line Drive During Mets & Marlins Game
The young boy was at the game between between the Florida Marlins and New York Mets. He was hit at the very end of the game “when Florida’s Greg Dobbs hit a ninth-inning liner into the right-field seats, just beyond the New York dugout.” He was bleeding heavily and had to be taken out by a wheelchair before eventually being transferred to an ambulance. His mother was with him during this time.
Following the final out of New York’s 2-1 victory, Mets second baseman Justin Turner went over to wait for the boy by the railing. Turner took off his jersey and handed it over as a souvenir. New York manager Terry Collins also came over, and Dobbs gave the boy a bat.
