Phillies Game Accident
At Citizens Bank Park on Friday night, during the first inning of Boston’s game versus Philadelphia, a spectator was transported to the hospital after tumbling over a safety railing and into the Red Sox bullpen. According to emergency care professionals on the scene, the fan was rushed to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital after falling one level from an open concourse onto the Boston bullpen in right-center field. According to a statement from the Phillies, the injury happened after the fan lunged over the railing to try and catch a ball that was thrown his way. After leaving the stadium, the spectator, according to the Phillies, was awake and alert. His wounds weren’t made public.
A Phillies employee was removing blood from the concrete near the fan’s fall later in the game. When the Philadelphia Phillies reliever Jose Alvarado sprinted from the bullpen into the outfield to draw attention to the incident, Masataka Yoshida, Boston’s second batter, was facing Philadelphia’s, Zack Wheeler. Red Sox relievers watched as medical personnel hurried to the second level of the bullpen. As medical professionals went to the fan, who was wearing a Phillies jersey, security personnel swiftly cleared spectators from the railing in Ashburn Alley, which is close to the opposing bullpen.
Red Sox relievers watched in alarm as the ballpark, which was almost completely sold out in anticipation of the game and Bryce Harper’s first action in Philadelphia following offseason elbow surgery, fell silent. The fan was carried away from the bullpen and field on a stretcher and a wagon while being fastened to a backboard. Josh Witkowski, a reliever for Boston, stated, “It was obviously unsettling for a lot of us. According to Winckowski, “We were all pretty worried, feeling uneasy,” and he was worried the fan might have perished in the autumn. He and the other Boston relievers were able to unwind a little after learning that the fan was awake and speaking.
