The Associated Press reported today (20th) that a broadcast reporter who collapsed after being hit by a blitz in the head during a major league game in the United States has recovered safely.

According to the AP, Reporter Kelsey Wingert of AT&T Sportsnet of the United States was hit with a foul ball in the ninth inning of the Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants game held at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado on the 17th.

Reporter Wingert, who was waiting at the photojournalist near the first base dugout, collapsed while not avoiding a 153km/h assault bat struck by San Francisco outfielder Austin Slater.

The match was suspended for a while, and Reporter Wingert was transferred to a nearby hospital where he underwent a thorough examination and treatment for five hours.

The reporter introduced his forehead stitched on his social media on the 19th and said, "With the club's prompt response and help, he has recovered safely."

This isn't the first time Wingert Reporter has been taken to hospital after being hit by a foul ball.

The Associated Press reported that "Winger Tree Reporter suffered a fracture of his right orbit in a batted ball in 2018."
