Kelsey Wingert was sitting near the first base camera when the Giants’ Austin Slater hit a foul ball in the top of the ninth inning, USA Today reported.

“Checking in – Monday I took a 95 MPH line drive to my head,” Wingert posted on Twitter, along with a photo showing what appear to be stitches up the center of her forehead. The tweet also says she was at the hospital being treated for five hours after the hit.

In a post to her Instagram stories, Wingert said, “I had a CT scan to make sure there was no internal bleeding or fractures and all came back clear. Thank God. I received internal and external stitches because of how deep the wound is.”

Wingart is set to get married in June, and said in the post that doctors are hoping the scar won’t be too bad, USA Today reported.

This is actually the second time that Wingart has been hit by a ball while working in Major League Baseball. In 2018, she was working for the Atlanta Braves when she was hit by a line drive, WSB reported. At the time, she was also standing near the first base camera, and suffered a fractured eye socket, WSB reported.
