Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero's bat flew into the stands and hit a female fan in the leg during his fourth inning at-bat in Friday night's MLB game at Chase Field against the Washington Nationals.
Montero swung at a 1-0 pitch and it went flying about six rows back in the stands behind the D-backs dugout. The female fan grabbed the bat after it bounced off her leg and stomach. The fan had some visible soreness on her leg, but according to AP reports, she was OK and later returned the bat. However, it might be time to consider extending the screens that are behind home plate to protect the fans behind the dugout from injuries.
It was an interesting at-bat for Montero, as on the very next pitch, he fouled a pitch off the mask of home plate umpire Dale Scott, forcing him to leave the game.
