Kelsey Wingert, a reporter for the Rockies, is in recovery this week after she “took a 95 mph line drive” to the forehead in Colorado’s 7-6 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Monday.
The Giants’ Austin Slater hit a foul ball off Rockies pitcher Daniel Bard in the ninth inning. The ball hit Wingert where she was sitting near the first-base camera and she received immediate medical attention.
“The @Rockies & @ATTSportsNetRM have treated me like family. Getting me treatment & to the best hospital ASAP. I was at hospital for 5 hours w/ David Woodman (GM of AT&T SN), his wife, Paula & my producer Alison Vigil,” Wingert tweeted in an update Wednesday.
Wingert said all of her CT scans came back clear and didn’t find any internal bleeding or fractures. She shared a photo of the stitches she had to get for her head.
“I’ve been staying at my GM’s house. I can’t say enough about AT&TSN & the Rox. I’ve never experienced support like this. Thank you for the prayers,” Wingert tweeted.
