Atlanta Braves TV reporter Kelsey Wingert suffered a fractured eye socket on Friday night when she was hit with a foul ball. She was hit while standing in the camera well past the Braves’ first base dugout.
Back home. I have a fracture in my eye socket, but it could have been MUCH worse. I really appreciate all the tweets, calls and texts.

Wingert was briefly hospitalized On Friday night, but was resting comfortably on Saturday. You have to keep your eye on the ball at all times.
There’s nothing that @Starburst jellybeans can’t fix right? My rockstar friend @KelsWingert is back home and doing well after getting hit in the eye on a foul ball last night working the @Braves game! Talk about a warrior! pic.twitter.com/mTWHIjEUe5

If she’s not going to pay attention, then she’ll have to get fitted for a protective bubble. Something tells me she’ll be going with the protective bubble.
