Former Braves reporter Kelsey Wingert recuperating from foul ball injury

She said it could have been a lot worse.

Former Atlanta Braves TV reporter Kelsey Wingert, now covering the Colorado Rockies, got hit in the forehead by a foul ball earlier this week but appears to be on the mend.

She currently works for AT&T SportsNet in Denver after spending three years with what was then called Fox Sports South and Fox Sports Southeast from 2016 to 2019.

“The @Rockies & @ATTSportsNetRM have treated me like family. Getting me treatment & to the best hospital ASAP,” Wingert tweeted Wednesday.

Wingert said in the tweet that she spent five hours at the hospital with her producer, the general manager of AT&T SportsNet and his wife. “I had [a] CT scan to check for internal bleeding/fractures & it came back clear, Thank God,” she said.

She was hit by a foul hit by Giants player Austin Slater in the ninth inning Monday. She was sitting in the first-base camera well at Coors Field, The Associated Press reported. The ball came off Slater’s bat at about 95 miles per hour, she estimated.

Wingert returned to Atlanta this week and stitches are expected to come out in a few days, she said. She added that it could have been a lot worse.

The sports reporter is set to get married in June to high school pastor Casey Lynch, she noted in social media. Wingert purchased her wedding dress from “Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta” star Lori Allen from the Bridals by Lori boutique in Sandy Springs.
