Shohei Ohtani's 112 mph home run hits young fan in head at Dodger Stadium

The Los Angeles Dodgers took a one-run lead against the Arizona Diamondbacks when Shohei Ohtani hit his 27th home run of the season Tuesday night.   

The Los Angeles Dodgers took a one-run lead against the Arizona Diamondbacks when Shohei Ohtani hit his 27th home run of the season Tuesday night.   

Slow-motion footage of Ohtani's home run showed the ball hitting a toddler in the forehead while spectators tried to catch it. The fan may have been gravely harmed by Ohtani's 112 mph hit.   

The Dodgers defeated their NL West opponent, 6-5, with Ohtani's home run. He hasn't pitched since September elbow ligament surgery.   

Ohtani hits.320, trailing New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge (.321) for the league lead.  Ohtani surpassed Gunnar Henderson for second in MLB home runs.   

Ohtani is fulfilling the Dodgers' 10-year, $700 million deal he signed this offseason, even if he is not pitching. After earning the American League MVP with the Los Angeles Angels, he's a National League MVP candidate.  

Ohtani will try to win his third MVP on Wednesday against the Diamondbacks
