The child was hit during a May 29 game against the Chicago Cubs. In the fourth inning of that game, Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr. hit a foul ball that struck the child, who was sitting in her grandfather’s lap.
The child’s family has retained an attorney to speak with the Astros about the incident. The family has not filed a lawsuit against the team yet, but decided to retain an attorney to communicate with the club.
The Astros have been asked about doing the same. They are looking into that issue but have no plans to extend netting in 2019.
The child is still experiencing seizures and abnormal electroencephalogram (EEG) readings weeks after the game.
