Paramedic hit by foul liner in Astros dugout hospitalized, in stable condition

It was a scary scene in Houston during Game 2 of the ALCS when a foul ball off the bat of Michael Brantley screamed into the Astros dugout and struck a paramedic in the fifth inning.

News regarding the man’s condition was scarce throughout the night, but the Astros released a statement in the early hours of Monday morning that said the medic was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition.

The company the medic works for, Harris County Emergency Corps, provided no further details.

Play on the field was halted after the liner hit the medic. Players for both the Astros and Yankees put their hands on their heads or over their mouths in concern as the medic eventually left the dugout with a towel pressed against his head.
