I know, right..crazy..but she'll be ok T..

Minnesota Twins leadoff man Denard Span hit a foul ball that struck his mother in the chest during Wednesday’s exhibition game in Tampa, Fla. Span went into the stands to check on her, found out she was OK and stayed in the game. Wanda Wilson was sitting in the box seats near the third-base dugout when her son hit a foul liner leading off the game against the New York Yankees.  Span sprinted to his mom and stayed while paramedics treated her. The game was delayed for a few minutes and she was taken to first aid. Span returned to the plate and struck out on the next pitch. The Twins said Span’s mother was all right. She was back in the seats by the bottom of the first inning.–Chicago Tribune
