Braves sideline reporter Kelsey Wingert suffered a fractured eye socket after being hit by a line drive during Friday night's game, she said on Twitter early Saturday.

Wingert, who works for Fox Sports South, was stationed near the dugout when she was hit by a foul ball. She was transported to a local hospital and underwent a CAT scan, but tweeted shortly before 2 a.m. Saturday that she was back home and recovering.


As word of her injury spread, friends and co-workers reached out to send their best wishes.



Wingert has worked Braves games since 2016.
