Last night, Texas softball pitcher Miranda Elish was taken to the hospital after she got accidentally pegged in the face with the ball during a NCAA Division I Super Regional game against Alabama.

During the second inning, Texas catcher Mary Iakopo threw to second base to try to get a forceout after Alabama’s Elissa Brown bunted the ball. Unfortunately, Elish didn’t see the throw and got hit in the face with the ball.

Despite having a bit of a swollen face it appears that Elish is ok.
