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

A White Sox fan was hit by a foul ball.

CHICAGO — The White Sox say a 32-year-old Chicago man was back home Wednesday recovering from a broken nose after being hit by a foul ball the previous night.

The man was injured in the ninth inning of Tuesday’s game against Detroit. He was seated in the first row on the first base side at Guaranteed Rate Field, 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 before walking to the first-aid station. He was then taken to Rush University Medical Center.
