Pitcher hit in face by softball

University of Texas pitcher Miranda Elish was struck in the second inning when the Longhorns’ catcher, Mary Iakopo, grabbed a bunted ball and tried to throw out a runner heading to second base.
Instead, Iakopo’s throw struck Elish squarely in the face, knocking her to the ground.
“She said ‘I’m OK, I’m OK,’ and of course it didn’t look good. And we knew she wasn’t OK. She was in a lot of pain going to the hospital.” Longhorns coach Mike White
