Tonight’s Cubs vs. Pirates game was delayed for 23 minutes after a woman was struck in the head by a foul ball.

The woman was getting back into her seat behind home plate when Starlin Castro of the Chicago Cubs fouled a rocket straight back. The ball did not go through the netting, but the woman was close enough for the ball to strike her in the back of the head.

There hasn’t been an official update on her condition, but Chicago Sun-Times beat writer Gordon Wittenmyer gave a positive update on her condition.
