Erik Williams/USA TODAY Sports May 29, 2019: Chicago Cubs center fielder Albert Almora Jr. (5, center) is consoled by right fielder Jason Heyward (22, left) and manager Joe Maddon (70) after a fan was hit by a foul ball during the fourth inning against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.

                        A foul ball off the bat of Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr. struck a child?and left Almora visibly shaken during a game against the Astros at Minute Maid Park on Wednesday.

                        Almora was batting in the top of the fourth inning and lined a ball into the seats on the third-base side of the Houston ballpark. According to those present at the game, that ball hit a small child, who was quickly taken?up the stairs.

                        Almora was consoled by teammate Jason Heyward, who was on deck at the time, as? well as Cubs manager Joe Maddon. Almora ended up striking out during the at-bat and?did not return to?center field after the half inning.

                        He spoke to a security guard in the area where the child was for an update. He still couldn't contain his emotions, sobbing on the guard’s shoulder.

                        Almora and his wife, Krystal, recently welcomed their second son into the world, which likely factored?into his emotional reaction.

                        An eyewitness at the game posted to Reddit the child who was hit is a 4-year-old girl. And according to a security guard, the girl was alert but was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

                        The Astros?released a statement on Twitter, saying, "The young fan that was struck by a foul ball during tonight's game was taken to the hospital. We are not able to disclose any further details at this time. The Astros send our thoughts and prayers to the entire family."
