Young fan injured at Yankees game by foul liner

MINNEAPOLIS MN- JULY 19 New York Yankees Left field Brett Gardner makes contact during a MLB game between the Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees

Wednesday afternoon's Yankees-Twins game was delayed several minutes in the bottom of the fifth inning after a young fan sitting down the third-base line at Yankee Stadium was hit by a hard liner off the bat of Todd Frazier.

ESPN didn't replay the incident, but Frazier and members of both teams appeared upset afterward. Frazier knelt on one knee and bowed his head as the scene played out in the hushed ballpark.

A nearby fan can be seen immediately signaling for help after the play. Frazier squatted down, took off his helmet and looked on with obvious concern, while the player due to hit next, Matt Holliday, appeared to be in tears.

The age of the person hit by the foul ball and the extent of her injuries is not yet clear, as the game's broadcast chose not to show the fan on camera.

The seats are in an area that is not protected by netting that, in Yankee Stadium, now extends to the beginning of each dugout.

Major League Baseball mandated that netting it be extended to at least each dugout before the 2016 season. This July, the Yankees were said to be "seriously exploring" a plan to extend the netting after a fan was hit in the head by a foul ball hit by Aaron Judge in July.

Members of the New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins were visibly shaken Wednesday after a foul ball injured a child during a game at Yankee Stadium.
