White Sox say fan hit by foul back home with broken nose

By The Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) — A 32-year-old Chicago man whose nose was broken by a foul ball during a White Sox game was back home Wednesday, the team said a day after he was struck at Guaranteed Rate Field.

The White Sox said the fan was released from the hospital and recovering.

The man was injured in the ninth inning Tuesday night in a game between Chicago and Detroit. He was seated in the first row on the first base side, well beyond the netting that extends to the end of the camera box past the dugout, when a line drive by the Tigers' Jeimer Candelario hit him in the face.

The man bled profusely and was treated at his seat for several minutes as play was stopped. He later walked to the first-aid station and was taken to Rush University Medical Center.

"Balls are flying out of here at high rates of velocity," White Sox manager Rick Renteria said Wednesday. "I think he tried to catch it. It's kind of tough, even for a professional, with the way the ball flies."

"I'm glad to hear that he's doing fine and recovering," he said.
