DENVER (AP) -- The Colorado Rockies say a fan who was hit by a foul ball this weekend at Coors Field and taken out of the stands on a stretcher is OK.

The Rockies sent an email Sunday saying the 20-year-old woman was treated at the ballpark and released.

The woman, whose name was not released, was hit by a foul ball off the bat of Atlanta's Tyler Pastornicky in the seventh Saturday night

The game was delayed for about six minutes while paramedics treated the woman before transporting her from the seats. She had a neck brace when she was taken away.

A spokesman for the Braves said that Pastornicky signed a couple of baseballs and had stadium personnel take them to the woman.
