Erin Andrews Sent To Hospital After Being Struck By Foul Ball

Thursday, July 09, 2009

Oh god no!!! I wish I was joking about the above title, but according to TMZ, Erin Andrews took a foul ball to the chin last night during the Mets-Dodgers game. According to the gossip site, Andrews was in her usually spot when a 4th inning liner by Alex Cora popped her one good....

Super hot sportscaster Erin Andrews shouldn't participate in any activities where balls fly at her face -- "Clueless" anyone? -- because a line drive hit her perfect mug last night during the Mets/Dodgers game.

Andrews -- who serves as a sideline reporter for ESPN -- was struck in the chin by a foul ball hit by New York Mets player Alex Cora during the 4th inning.

Erin was hustled to the hospital a few innings later, but only suffered a bruised chin.
Whew! Crisis avoided. I'm actually surprised this doesn't happen to sideline reporters more often, and even though it did, thank goodness it wasn't more serious than it could have been. Get better soon, EA!

Update via ESPN: "She's totally fine. The producers on site suggested she go to the hospital as a precaution. Doctors released her soon thereafter. She flew home as scheduled and is looking forward to working MLB All-Star events and the ESPYs in the coming week."

I completely disagree.

This is why everyone should hate the goddamn Mets.

I find it funny that a self-proclaimed Math Geek would look down at EA. You sir must be beating off women left and right!

Wait, reading that quote again, maybe he meant that balls in the face were a good thing. Touche, salesman.

I bet there were some double meaning headlines that couldn't be used.

She should show up with a helmet on for her next on-camera - it'd be a classic moment.

Glad she's OK. It's a good thing it didn't hit her in the nose. We could have had another Marcia Brady episode.

All right ESPN,

now bring up sexy Adriana Monsalves. Not only is she bilingual and better looking than EA, I'm sure she's more athletic too as I remember reading somewhere she played soccer growing up.

I'm sure that is not the first (or last) time she's had foul balls on her chin.
