(670 The Score) The 2-year-old girl struck by a line-drive foul ball off the bat of Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr. in a game in Houston on May 29 suffered a skull fracture in the incident, her family's lawyer told ABC-13 News and other outlets in Houston.

The girl also had subdural bleeding, brain contusions and brain edema and suffered a seizure, according to attorney Richard Mithoff's office.

"The family's foremost concern is about the health of their child, but they also wanted me to extend their thanks to the fans and the Astros for their concern," Mithoff said.

The scary incident renewed calls to extend protective netting in MLB ballparks farther down the foul lines. Recently, several MLB teams -- including the White Sox and Rangers -- have announced they will taken action by extending their netting.

Many players across the MLB landscape, including Almora, have expressed their support for extending the protective netting.
