According to a summary of the hospital records provided by Mithoff, the child sustained a skull fracture with associated subdural bleeding, brain contusions, and brain edema.
...
The child continues to undergo treatment at Baylor College of Medicine's Blue Bird Circle Clinic for Pediatric Neurology and continues to suffer seizures and has an abnormal electroencephalogram reading, Mithoff said.

Fuck.  Hope she recovers.

Netting from foul pole to foul pole.  Do it.

What a nightmare for the child and her family.

Kids are resilient.  God bless her and her family.

I just hope she has excellent doctors.

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

Often wrong, but never in doubt.

I hope the kid has no lasting effect and grows up with no reoccurring problems. I hope other parents, in the future, understand the danger and avoid putting their toddlers in harms way by sitting in the path of potential line-drive foul balls.
And my sins are so unoriginal, I have all the self-loathing of a wolf in sheep's clothing. In this carnival of carnivores, Heaven help me.

A put a huge box of batting helmets behind the stands anywhere there's a foul ball risk?

Seems like some places have already extended them far down the lines and I have yet to hear a chorus of complaints.  In a few years, people will reminisce and wonder why extending them was ever an issue.
