Woman hit by bat at Oakland A’s game remains in serious condition

BOSTON (AP) — A woman hit by a broken bat at Fenway Park during a game between the Oakland Athletics and the Boston Red Sox on Friday night remains in serious condition at a Boston hospital.

Tonya Carpenter was struck in the head by Oakland player Brett Lawrie’s bat as she sat near the field between home plate and the third base dugout.

A spokeswoman for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Hospital says Carpenter’s condition is not expected to change Sunday.

Her family said in a statement released by the hospital Saturday they are “grateful to all who have reached out with thoughts and prayers.”

Forty-four-year-old Carpenter, of Paxton, Massachusetts, had posted a Facebook photo from the game before the accident. A friend said Carpenter was there with her son and a friend.
