BOSTON (CBS/AP) – A child hit by Nick Punto’s flying bat in the Fenway Park stands during Saturday’s game has been treated and released from Children’s Hospital, according to WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche.
The boy was carried from the stands behind the Red Sox dugout after he was hit by the bat in the sixth inning of a game between the Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles.
Punto, batting left-handed with one out in the sixth, had the bat slip out of hands and fly about two rows behind the dugout, striking the child.
