Good news coming out of Progressive Field, Tuesday afternoon. 

The Cleveland Indians organization says that a 3-year-old boy, named Henry, is showing no signs of serious injury after being hit by a foul ball during Sunday's game against the Kansas City Royals. 

Henry was struck by a foul ball driven by shortstop Francisco Lindor. Visibly upset about the accident, Lindor called on Major League Baseball officials to take precautionary measures after the game.
