AUGUSTA, N.J. -- An 11-month-old child has been hospitalized after being hit by a line drive foul ball during a professional baseball game in New Jersey.

New Jersey state police Trooper Lawrence Peele says the child was conscious and alert when flown to University Hospital in Newark. A hospital spokesman says the child 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.
