Line drive hits fan in head

CHICAGO -- A fan at U.S. Cellular Field needed medical attention after being struck in the head by a foul ball during the Chicago White Sox's game against the New York Yankees.

The man was injured when Curtis Granderson lined a pitch from Gavin Floyd leading off the seventh to the area near the first-base dugout. Spectators seated nearby immediately signaled for help, and medical personnel and security tended to him for several minutes before he walked away with a bandage on his head, still seeming woozy.

Granderson flied out and then re-emerged from the dugout, delivering a ball to someone in the stands near where the fan was struck.

The White Sox had no further information after the game.
