Waverly Police say that an ambulance was called around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday night to transport the baby.

The Family says that baby McKenna was hit in the head by a stray softball. Her mother, Kassy Hovenga says it was a ‘freak accident’.

Hovenga says that her daughter has a fractured skull and two blood clots in her brain that are causing her to have seizures.

As of this morning, her seizures have reduced.

Hovenga says that the baby just had an MRI and she should be getting an update on her condition soon.
