Pete Stendel is at home resting and “he and his family appreciate everyone’s support,” YES Network, for whom Stendel was working, announced Thursday.
The game was delayed for approximately 17 minutes as medical personnel attended to Stendel, who was positioned next to the Yankees’ dugout. He held up his fingers in a peace sign to the crowd when he was taken off the field in a cart.
“Every time that a ball goes over the first baseman or even a foul ball from the hitter, you don’t want to see it going toward a fan,” Henderson said after the game. “It just happened to be in the wrong spot, and I hope he’s doing all right. My prayers go out to him. I’m just thankful for the guys that rushed over there to him to help him.”
Said Yankees outfielder Jake Bauers: “That was scary. I think I speak for all of us when I say our thoughts are with him. Hope he’s doing all right and he’s feeling better and we see him back here soon.”
