Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr. reacted immediately to a foul ball he hit into the stands during Wednesday night’s game in Houston. The reports are the foul ball struck a small child who was sitting behind the visitor’s dugout.

Almora stayed down on a knee with tears in his eyes as the child was receiving medical attention.

It’s a tough thing to have happen to a small kid in the stands. Fans really need to keep their kids and other people who are unable to protect themselves out of the areas that are known for hard foul balls.
This is unfortunately what can happen to those who can’t react quickly enough to the laser beams hit into the seats.
Almora had a really hard time with the fact that he hit a small child.
