This is not good news to report.

The 2-year old girl who was hit by an Albert Almora foul ball during at an Astros-Cubs game on May 29 at Minute Maid Park has suffered a skull fracture, subdural bleeding, brain contusions, and brain edema according to her family's attorney.

The attorney office of Richard Mitholff released the following statement:

"The family's foremost concern is about the health of their child, but they also wanted me to extend their thanks to the fans and the Astros for their concern," said Mithoff.

According to the lawyer, the child also had a seizure and is on medication to treat it. Currently, she is recovering at home.

MLB released the following statement in May about the incident:

"The events at last night's game were extremely upsetting. We send our best wishes to the child and family involved. Clubs have significantly expanded netting and their inventory of protected seats in recent years. With last night's event in mind, we will continue our efforts on this important issue."

CubsHQ would like to wish the best to the two-year-old on a full recovery from the incident.
