Photo by Abbie Parr/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A young girl was struck by a line drive foul ball at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday, during the game between the New York Yankees and the Minnesota Twins.

The girl was taken to a nearby hospital where there was no update on her condition provided.

The child was attending the game with her grandparents, ESPN reports, when a foul ball off the bat of Yankees third baseman Todd Frazier hit her in the face. The game was delayed, and several players on both teams looked visibly distraught.

Yankees outfielder Matt Holliday was seen wiping away tears.

During a postgame news conference, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he was told by team security staff that the girl was doing okay.

Frazier spoke to reporters after the game with tears in his eyes. He said the moment made him think to his own two children. "It was terrible. I was shaken up a little bit. I hope she is all right," Frazier said.

"It is something that I wish never happened. It was tough. Tough to watch. Tough to be a part of, to be honest."

At Yankee Stadium, protective netting extends from home plate on each side to each team's dugout. Calls have been issued in recent years for expanding protective netting at all parks.

"Either one, you don't bring kids down there, or number two, every stadium needs to have nets," Twins second baseman Brian Dozier said after the game. "I don't care about the damn view of a fan or what. It's all about safety."

"I still have a knot in my stomach," Dozier added. "I hope the kid's okay."

In 2015, Major League Baseball issued recommendations to extend the netting to the ends of the dugouts closest to home plate. The Yankees have been examining the issue, while their crosstown rival New York Mets have already extended netting beyond the outfield ends of the dugouts this season.

Photo by Phil Ellsworth / ESPN Images(MINNEAPOLIS) -- Fresh off one of the best games of his career, Minnesota Vikings quarterback missed his team's Week Two game against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week because of a left knee injury. Bradford said Thursday that the injury wasn't caused by a hit or any other contact play.

"I felt it when it happened," Bradford said Wednesday. "I honestly didn't think it was that big of a deal, and then the longer the game went on, it started to feel just a little bit worse and a little worse."

He said he was aware of his diagnosis, but would not elaborate to reporters.

Bradford was limited in practice last week and was inactive for the game against Pittsburgh following a pregame workout.

According to Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, Bradford remains day-to-day.

Bradford has previously torn the ACL in his left knee in both 2013 and again in 2014.

33ft/iStock/Thinkstock(WICHITA FALLS, Texas) -- A Division II college football player died on Tuesday from injuries suffered in a game this weekend.

Cornerback Robert Grays, a sophomore at Midwestern State University, was injured making a tackle in his team's game against Texas A&M-Kingsville on Saturday. An athletics department spokesman told ESPN that Grays had been hospitalized in Wichita Falls on Saturday and flown to a hospital in his hometown of Houston.

School president Suzanne Shipley penned a statement released by Midwestern State Wednesday morning mourning Grays' death.

"Robert touched many lives while attending the university, but perhaps he will be remembered best for his smile. He was an inspiration on and off the field to those around him, and he will be remembered with love and affection by his friends, classmates, coaches and teammates."

The nineteen-year-old's family offered a statement thanking those who had offered "prayers, kind words, condolences and support."

Grays was the second college football player to die this week. College of Wooster offensive lineman Clayton Geib, 21, died Sunday after the school reported that he "did not feel well" during the team's weekend game.

BananaStock/Thinkstock(WHEATON, Ill.) -- Five football players from Wheaton College -- a Christian school in Illinois -- are facing felony charges for allegedly assaulting another student last year.

The alleged incident happened in March 2016 in Wheaton, about 25 miles west of Chicago, during which the alleged victim claims he was taken forcefully out of his dorm room, restrained against his will and left at a baseball field, Wheaton Police Chief Jim Volpe said Tuesday.

According to an investigation report obtained by ABC News, the alleged victim told school investigators that he was in a dorm when several people burst in, held him down, "violently" pulled his arms behind him and wrapped duct tape around his ankles and wrists.

The attackers put a pillowcase on his head and duct-taped it, and put him into a car, the alleged victim told investigators.

The alleged victim told investigators that his attackers attempted to sexually assault him with an object, and that he was also punched and slapped.

He told investigators that he was taken to a baseball field. He said dirt was thrown on him, his cellphone was taken, and he was left there partially naked.

After an investigation that has lasted more than a year, a judge on Monday signed arrest warrants for five Wheaton football players in connection with the case and set bonds at $50,000 for each, Paul Darrah of the DuPage County State's Attorney's Office told ABC News.

The five players are being charged with aggravated battery, mob action and unlawful restraint, Volpe said. The players have been "deemed inactive for practice or competition by the college’s administration and coaching staff," the school said Tuesday evening.

Volpe claimed Tuesday that part of why the investigation took so long was there were many people to interview, and since the alleged incident occurred close to the end of the school year, many individuals whom police were looking to speak with were gone during the summer.

Volpe said all the young men are expected to turn themselves in within a few days, but there is no set deadline on when they must do so. Volpe said they have fully cooperated. As of Tuesday evening, two of the players had turned themselves in.

Darrah said the most serious charge -- aggravated battery -- carries a maximum sentence of two to five years in prison.

The alleged victim told school investigators he suffered labral tears on both shoulders from the way his arms were pulled and restrained.

The alleged victim left Wheaton College shortly after the alleged incident.

Wheaton College said in a statement that it is "deeply troubled by the allegations brought by law enforcement against five members of our football team."

"When this incident was brought to our attention by other members of the football team and coaching staff in March 2016, the college took swift action to initiate a thorough investigation," Wheaton College said. "Our internal investigation into the incident, and our engagement with an independent, third-party investigator retained by the college, resulted in a range of corrective actions. We are unable to share details on these disciplinary measures due to federal student privacy protections."

"The conduct we discovered as a result of our investigation into this incident was entirely unacceptable," the school said.

The college said its anti-hazing policy and training protocols were revised in 2014 to "include a formal review of our anti-hazing policy with all student-athletes every year, with required student signatures."

"This incident has prompted our Board of Trustees to engage outside experts to lead a campus-wide review of the level of effectiveness of our anti-hazing policy and of the culture around how students treat one another in our campus communities, athletic teams and organizations. Wheaton remains committed to providing Christ-centered development programs and training to all our students," the school said. "Despite these deeply troubling charges, we have experienced positive changes on campus, including rapid responses from campus leaders to reports of hazing or other inappropriate behavior and effective disciplinary review."

Allen Kee / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) -- Just weeks after Serena Williams gave birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia, she penned a note to her own mother, Oracene Price, praising her parenting skills.

Calling Price "one of the strongest women I know," Williams thanked her mother for her constant support, especially when "haters" called Williams "a man" and accused her of using drugs.

Williams noted that her daughter has "my exact same strong, muscular, powerful, sensational arms and body," and acknowledged that she's not sure how she would react if Alexis one day faced criticism of her body from strangers like she has.

"Mom, I'm not sure how you did not go off on every single reporter, person, announcer and quite frankly, hater, who was too ignorant to understand the power of a black woman," Williams wrote in a post that was published on Reddit. "I am proud we were able to show them what some women look like. We don't all look the same. We are curvy, strong, muscular, tall, small, just to name a few, and all the same: we are women and proud!"

Williams, 35, and her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 34, welcomed baby Alexis on Sept. 1. In her note to her mother, Williams, the youngest of five children, asked for her mother's help with raising her daughter.

"You are so classy, I only wish I could take your lead. I am trying, though, and God is not done with me yet. I have a LONG way to go, but thank you," she wrote. "Thank you for being the role model I needed to endure all the hardships that I now regard as a challenges--ones that I enjoy. I hope to teach my baby Alexis Olympia the same, and have the same fortitude you have had."

Rob Foldy/Miami Marlins via Getty Images(MIAMI) -- Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton was in a slump going into a series against the Mets. In his previous 11 games, Stanton went 7-for-40 with just one home run. Stanton had 18 home runs in August but only three in September ahead of Monday's game.

Stanton's dream of hitting 60 home runs this season seemed to be slipping away. Then he hit number 55 and he is one step closer to having the dream become reality. It was a 114 mph blast that traveled 455 feet and left the park in 4.5 seconds.

In 2001, Barry Bonds set the single-season record with 73 home runs. The same year, Sammy Sosa hit 64, Luis Gonzalez hit 57, and Alex Rodriguez hit 52.

He has 12 games to hit five home runs and reach 60, or six to tie Roger Maris at 61, or seven to reach 62, a figure topped only by Bonds, Mark McGwire and Sosa.

Stanton has homered every 10.0 at-bats this season, so given 50 at-bats the next 12 games, he would project to 60. Working in his favor is the Marlins' remaining schedule: two more games against the Mets, a six-game road trip to Arizona and Coloradoand finally four at home against the Braves.

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- Baltimore Orioles minor league pitcher Miguel Gonzalez died from injuries sustained in a car crash in his native Dominican Republic.

"Our organization is deeply saddened by the tragic passing of Miguel Gonzalez," executive vice president

Dan Duquette said in a statement. "Miguel was beloved by his teammates and coaches in the Dominican Republic. Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this very difficult time."

Orioles academy director Felipe Alou Jr. told our partners at ESPN that Gonzalez was returning home after visiting his girlfriend when he smashed his car against a truck that lost control.

Three persons were in the car with Gonzalez. All of them were uninjured, according to Alou.

The funeral will be on Tuesday at his parent's house located in the city of Arroyo Hondo.

Gonzalez, an undrafted free agent, had spent the last three seasons in the Dominican Summer League, appearing in 38 games (13 starts) and posting a 7.65 ERA.

Ralph Freso/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- The Washington Redskins have placed safety Su'a Cravens on the reserve/left squad list, meaning he will not return to the team this season.

 

A statement from the Washington #Redskins.https://t.co/Qssr0RTtnn pic.twitter.com/w4vMjUBNAk

— Washington Redskins (@Redskins) September 18, 2017

 

Earlier this month, our partners at ESPN reported that Cravens had told some within the organization that he was planning to retire, but a meeting with the Redskins' coaches and executives has changed his mind for the time being.

The 22-year-old Cravens then was put on the team's exempt/left squad list before Week 1, meaning he had to sit out for a month.

 Redskins coach Jay Gruden had said Cravens needed time to work out personal issues, but that he would welcome him if he wanted to return.

"Some people, football is not for them," Gruden said. "But I know he has a strong passion for the game and wants to play. But there are some things in his life that he needs to keep private -- that we will keep private -- that he has to take care of."
