    A child has been taken to hospital after she was hit by a foul ball off the bat of Chicago Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr at the Houston Astros stadium, leaving the player in tears.

    Almora was consoled by team-mates after the incident in the fourth inning.

    After the 25-year-old struck out, he went over to where the child was sitting in the third baseline and was pictured crying with a security guard.

    "As soon as I hit it, the first person I locked eyes on was her," he said.

    A distraught Almora told reporters after the game: "It was kind of a blur, the rest of that at-bat, then after that half inning I went over to the stands... I just couldn't hold it anymore.

    "I'm just praying, I'm just speechless, at a loss for words. Being a father for two boys - God willing I will be able to have a relationship with this little girl for the rest of my life."

      I see parents with newborns down in the foul line sections. I'm thinking are people that stupid. I took my daughter to a baseball game down along 3rd base. Probably 10-15 rows up. I had to tell her, you have to watch every hit because one could be coming right as us. So I had to pay really close attention to every at bat. Especially right hander pulls

        It's not nearly as dangerous as a baseball, but I'm a season ticket holder for the Chicago Fire Soccer Club, and I attend almost all the games. About 2 or 3 times a season, somebody gets hit in the head with a ball because they're playing on their phone and not watching the game.

        Pete (has had the ball drop in his lap 4 times, one of which was a "keeper" that he displays at his office)
