If you remember during Thursdays game Ted Lilly fouled off a ball thrown from Bronson. Unfortunately it struck a kid in the head, fracturing his skull. At first they weren't sure wether the child would live, but some good news today. I couldn't imagine what it would've been like to know a foul I hit killed a 7-year-old, I'm sure Lilly is feeling a little better today knowing the kid is getting better.
CHICAGO - Doctors and family members say a 7-year-old boy who fractured his skull when he was struck by a foul ball at Wrigley Field was recovering and expected to live.
Dominic DiAngi of suburban Frankfort was sitting behind the Cubs dugout Thursday afternoon during a game between the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds when a foul ball off the bat of Cubs pitcher Ted Lilly struck him in the head.
On Friday, the boy was in serious condition. Children's Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Julie Pesch says the boy regained consciousness on Friday and doctors said he was steadily improving throughout the day.
The game was the first major league game the boy had ever attended.
