Following the game, which the Yankees won 3-0, Carter spoke to the press about how bad he felt for the fan in question, wishing him the best (via AP):
“You never want to have something like that happen to a kid or anyone in general. I guess the good side of it is the square part of the bat didn’t pierce him or anything like that. So I hope he’s OK.”
“Once I figure out what happened to the kid, where they’re at, hopefully I can get a hold of him. Hopefully it’s not too bad.”
