Child struck by line drive at last night's Cubs-Astros game. More nets needed.
I just saw this story. The reactions of Almora, Jr. and the Astros catcher hit me hard, as did Almora, Jr.'s tears after.
I agree with those who think it's time to put nets up around the entire field, excepting the outfield. Every time one of those line drives goes into the stands, I hope to heaven that nobody's struck. Usually nobody is, but one of these days someone's gonna get killed. Kids can't react in time, and these days far too many people are paying more attention to their phones than they are the game.
Prayers for that little girl. I can't imagine if that had been my daughter or son.
