Almora overcome with emotion after foul ball hits child in stands

Chicago Cubs outfielder Albert Almora reacted as any parent might when a foul ball he hit in Wednesday night’s game against the Houston Astros struck a young girl in the stands.

Almora, a father of two, immediately put his hands on top of his head, then sunk to a knee on the ground as play came to a halt. Teammate Jason Heyward put his arm on Almora’s shoulders and Cubs manager Joe Maddon came out of the dugout to offer words of support.

All major league teams have extended the protective netting around home plate in recent years, but it does not cover the entirety of the lower bowl.
