Minnesota Twins leadoff man Denard Span hit a foul ball that struck his mom in the chest during

Wanda Wilson was wearing a Span jersey and sitting with about 20 family members and friends near the third-base dugout. Span took a defensive swing in the first inning and hit a liner right at her in the box seats.

A stunned Span sprinted into the stands and stayed with his mother while paramedics treated her. The split-squad game against the New York Yankees was delayed for a few minutes as she was taken to first aid, and the Twins said she was sore but OK.

Span returned to the plate and struck out on the next pitch. The Twins originally said Span would leave the game, but his mother was sitting in a different seat by the bottom of the first inning and he went to center field.

Span flied out in the second inning, then left in the bottom of the third. Span was born and raised in Tampa, and he regularly volunteers to make the long trip from the Twins’ spring training home in Fort Myers when Minnesota visits the Yankees so he can see his family.
