A fan fell into the visitor’s bullpen at Citizens Bank Park during Friday’s game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Boston Red Sox and needed medical attention before being stretchered off by stadium staff.
The fan fell over the fence separating the concourse and the lowered bullpen area while attempting to retrieve a ball that a player had thrown.
The game was delayed for approximately 10 minutes during the first inning as a result.
The fan seemed to be alert and responding to medical personnel while being taken away on a cart. He was transported to the trauma center of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, according to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com.
“It was definitely scary,” reliever Josh Winckowski said, according to Christopher Smith of Masslive. “A lot of us were nauseous.”
“Some of us saw it, some of us didn’t, but yeah, it was pretty traumatic,” Winckowski added.
The fan’s injuries weren’t disclosed.
