Foul ball hits woman in head at PNC Park despite netting

A woman took a foul ball off the back of the head as she passed through the first row of Pittsburgh's PNC Park on Monday night. She was transported to an area hospital and appears to be OK.The protective netting may have had a little too much give, although it's difficult to tell how close her head was to the netting at the time of impact. She was trying to sidestep other fans in the front row when Starlin Castro fouled an A.J. Burnett pitch straight back.
