A man sitting in the box seats at Wednesday night’s Red Sox game was hit on the forehead by a bat that slipped out of Toronto second baseman Devon Travis’ hands in the eighth inning.
The bat cleared the netting along the baseline and landed about 15 rows up in the box seats, about midway between third base and home plate. Security scrambled for towels and a stretcher was brought to take the man away.
The man received a big cheer from the crowd when he stood up. Holding a towel to his head in his right hand, he pumped his left fist to acknowledge the applause. He walked to the stretcher and sat on it and was wheeled away.
