A woman was hit by a foul ball Sunday at Wrigley Field, and that's shockingly common.
Another Baseball Fan Injured By A Foul Ball

A Chicago Cubs fan was taken to the hospital after being popped by a foul ball Sunday afternoon. 

It happened during the first inning of the Cubs' game against Atlanta. The game was stopped so medics could take the woman out on a stretcher. 

Fans being hit by balls or bats is surprisingly common. Just Friday, a woman in Detroit was hit by a foul ball behind the dugout.

Last month, one Oakland Athletics fan filed a lawsuit, saying Major League Baseball needs to do more to protect fans. 

"They know they have a problem the fans don't appreciate and they can easily fix it," the plaintiff's attorney in the case told KNTV.

The commissioner's office released a statement saying the league is "in the process of reevaluating all issues pertaining to fan safety, comfort and expectations." 

No word yet on how the woman hit Sunday is doing.
