Fan at Fenway Park hurt trying for foul, leaves on stretcher

BOSTON -- A fan at Fenway Park has been taken away on a stretcher after flipping over backward trying to catch a foul ball.

The accident occurred Wednesday during the seventh inning of a game between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox.

The fan was in the last row of the lower box seats, and landed on the concrete walkway that separates the lower and upper boxes. A witness said there was a bloody shirt on the concrete.

There was no immediate word on the fan's condition.

Several fans have been injured at Fenway Park this season.

In June, a woman was hit by a piece of a broken bat and sustained life-threatening injuries before recovering. In July, a woman was hit in the face by a foul and taken to a hospital. Earlier this week, a woman was hit in the elbow by thrown bat.

Last weekend, a baseball fan in Atlanta died after falling from the upper deck at Turner Field.
