7 week old hit in head by stray softball in Minnesota

Jackasses like this have been bringing baby's to baseball games for years. And we've been screaming that infants should be banned at pro sporting events for almost as long. Why? Because:

A baby girl is hospitalized after being hit on the head by a softball.

McKenna Hovenga, 7-weeks-old, was hit while her dad was playing in Shell Rock, Iowa.

She is now being treated at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., according to the Waverly Courier.

It continues:

The Family say that they were watching a men’s softball game this week, when the center fielder overthrew the ball to the third baseman, the ball went over the fence and hit the mother and 1-month-old baby.

Waverly Police say that an ambulance was called around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday night to transport the baby.

The Family says that baby McKenna was hit in the head by a stray softball. Her mother, Kassy Hovenga says it was a ‘freak accident’.

Hovenga says that her daughter has a fractured skull and two blood clots in her brain that are causing her to have seizures.
