While at a White Sox game with his family, poor Rowan Senders got more than he bargained for. While most little kids leave the stadium with a new t-shirt and a thing of cotton candy, Rowan left with a black eye and a fractured skull.
While enjoying the game with his mom, dad, and two sisters, Rowan was struck in the head by a home run ball hit by player Mike Aviles of the Cleveland Indians.
Since Rowan’s dad, Michael, was holding both Rowan and his sister after Rowan’s mom took one of the other siblings to the restroom, he was unable to completely shield Rowan from the fly ball. Luckily, though, the ball didn’t hit Rowan with full force, as it first hit Michael’s hand.
The little guy is handling his injury well and is in good spirits. Though he does have a pretty nice shiner, he did not suffer any internal bleeding or brain injuries and his head will wound on his own.
Still, the family set up a GoFundMe to help with medical costs. To donate, visit here.
