Los Angeles Dodgers star Shohei Ohtani hit his 27th home run of the season on Tuesday night, giving his team a one-run lead against the Arizona Diamondbacks. 

But during the celebration, a young fan in the right-field seats was hit in the head by the home run ball.

The ball left Ohtani’s bat at 112 mph and struck the child in the forehead as other fans tried to catch it.

It’s not yet known if the fan was seriously injured.  Ohtani's home run helped the Dodgers win 6-5. 

Despite not pitching this season due to elbow surgery, Ohtani is hitting .320, just below Aaron Judge’s .321. Ohtani also passed Gunnar Henderson for second in home runs in MLB.

Ohtani, who signed a 10-year, $700 million deal with the Dodgers this offseason, is once again an MVP candidate, now in the National League. He will continue to add to his impressive season Wednesday night against the Diamondbacks.
