Fan hits Reading Phillies player with baseball, ejected from park

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - August 26, 2010

The ball thrown from the upper deck on the third base side struck Reading (Pa.) Phillies pitcher J.C. Ramirez in the left leg Tuesday night. Ramirez remained in the game.

The Squirrels didn't disclose the fan's identity and Reading spokesman Tommy Viola didn't immediately return a telephone message Thursday.

Richmond, a Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, is in its debut season.
