A Lutherville family wants to thank the doctor that provided emergency care to a man struck a foul ball in June at a Baltimore Orioles baseball game.
The only problem is, they don't know who he is.
On the night of June 23, Jim Edrington and his family experienced the joy of going to a Baltimore Orioles' game and the horror of a stray foul ball.
"Everything changed in the third inning when a line drive foul ball came our way. As people yelled “watch out” we all ducked in our seats," Ellen Edrington, wrote in a . "Unfortunately, that foul ball happened to hit my husband directly in his eye. In a state of shock and paralyzed with fear, all I could see was my husband slumped in his seat with blood pouring from his head."

She wrote that behind them sat several nurses and a Johns Hopkins doctor that sprang into action.
"In a matter of seconds, that doctor was tending to my husband and managed everything whirling around us," Ellen wrote. "He stabilized my husband, got the ushers to notify the paramedics, and tended to him until we were able to move him from our seats to the waiting ambulance.
"With all the fear and activity around me, I didn’t even think to get his name."
Ellen told the Towson Times that the situation could've much worse, had the good doctor not been there.
