NEW YORK (CBS New York) – What was supposed to be a fun game for a young baseball fan, ended with a trip to the hospital.

Kelly Talks to Mona Rivera

Morgan Kelly, 11, of Rockville Centre, was readying to catch a foul ball heading toward her during Saturday’s Yankees vs. Red Sox game.

“I was like Oh my God it is coming right towards me … and then the next thing I know I see colored dots,” Kelly told 1010 WINS’ reporter Mona Rivera.

Her father Matthew told Rivera that he heard a pop and saw Kelly on the ground. “It hit right into her eye socket, Matthew said. “It could have hit her shoulder or her arm, even the floor — but it had to hit right into her eye socket.”

Her father said she suffered multiple facial fractures around her eye and her face was all bruised and puffy. She was treated at the hospital Saturday and returned for consultations Monday.

As well as being a trouper, Kelly is a huge baseball fan and said this isn’t going to keep her from heading back to The Bronx. “The next time that happens, I am going to bring my glove every time,” she said.

The Yankees have invited Morgan and her family back to the stadium for a game next season.
