Royals Brown Unintentionally Injures KC Reporter In Clubhouse

ANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ A Kansas City television reporter was
hit in the face with a plastic pellet fired by a Royals player
today.
The team says outfielder Emil Brown shot the plastic pellet gun
and didn't intend to hit K-M-B-C sports reporter Karen Kornacki.
Gary Roberts of K-M-B-C says Kornacki was interviewing shortstop
Tony Pena this afternoon when the pellet hit near her left eye.
Roberts says Kornacki ended the interview and left the locker room
immediately.
A Royals' trainer treated her and gave her an ice pack, and the
station sent her to see her eye doctor.
K-M-B-C is an A-B-C affiliate, and Kornacki has been with the
station for more than 20 years.
Royals spokesman Toby Cook says the team apologized and is
investigating.
