SJ - May 19, 2022

When you're at a baseball game you have to keep your head on a swivel, even then a foul ball can find you.  Just ask Rockies reporter Kelsey Wingert.  She took a 95 MPH line drive to her forehead on Monday while sitting near the first base camera.

After 5 hours in the hospital and two days of recovery Kelsey shared a picture of her injuries.  The picture shows she still has some pretty good swelling as well as a bunch of stitches.

The good news is that there is no internal bleeding or fractures.

It sounds like Kelsey will be making a full recovery.  That's always welcome news when someone gets hit with a foul ball.  Hopefully she'll resume be able to resume her duties soon, maybe with a helmet or behind a screen of some sort.
