[10/20/2017] Akira Nakamura’s home run hits spectator

Akira Nakamura hit a home run during tonight’s game against the Rakuten Eagles at YafuOkue Dome that hit a female spectator in the head. She was given treatment at the stadium and was then taken to a hospital because she suffered a laceration. She never lost consciousness.

The female spectator was wearing a Nakamura uniform at the time. The ball that hit her bounced into the terrace seats in front of her. The Softbank Hawks presented her with a game-used ball autographed by Nakamura.
