Sports (recap)
Ocean County sports-watch:
During the Yankees Wednesday 11-3 route and sweep of the Twins, a young fan was struck in the face with a 105-mph foul ball of the bat of Yankees third baseman Todd Frazier at Yankee stadium.

Frazier immediately crouched outside of home-plate as he and other players looked on shaken.

After the game he said it was an ugly sight.

"I saw the whole thing," said Frazier. "I know the dad or whoever was with them was trying their hardest but the balls probably coming about 120-mph at them."

Following the game the yankees said the girl was ok and was taken to a hospital for treatment.
