AUGUSTA, N.J. — Authorities say an 11-month-old boy was hit in the face by a line drive foul ball while sitting in his stroller at a professional baseball game in New Jersey.

State police spokesman Lt. Ted Schaefer says the boy was hit in his right eye by the foul ball Wednesday night during a Sussex County Miners game at Skylands Stadium in Augusta.

He was conscious and alert when he was flown to University Hospital in Newark, where a spokesman says he was listed in stable condition Thursday morning.

The Miners are in the Canadian American Association of Professional Baseball, an independent league. They won the Wednesday game against the Trois-Rivieres Aigles of Quebec, 4-2.
