Bat boy hit in face by foul ball

(WBBH) -- By the time you hear the crack of a bat, it can be too late to avoid the baseball. One Fort Myers Miracle Bat Boy learned that painful lesson Saturday.

“They have helmets on and everything they can do, but when a ball comes at you, there’s nothing you can do about it,” spectator Tracy Juliano said.

Saturday, the bat boy was near the Miracle dugout when a player from the opposing team hit a foul ball. The ball drilled the boy in his face.
