BOSTON (AP) - Friends have started an online fundraiser for a woman hit by a flying bat during Friday night’s game between the Oakland Athletics and the Boston Red Sox.

Tonya Carpenter remained in serious condition Sunday at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. She was struck in the head by Oakland player Brett Lawrie’s bat as she sat between home plate and the third base dugout at Fenway Park with her son and a friend.

Her friends say on their gofundme page 44-year-old Carpenter was lucid after surgery Friday, but faces a long recovery. They say she’s “a beautiful, positive, upbeat, hardworking single mom who would do anything” for family and friends.

Her family says in a statement they’re “grateful to all who have reached out with thoughts and prayers.”
