Astros Shooting Stars member hit by cart on field
HOUSTON – The Houston Astros Coca Cola Shooting Stars member who was hit by a cart on the field during the Astros vs. Rangers game is doing fine, according to an Astros representative.
The woman was on the field Saturday facing the crowd when the driver of the cart hit her. The cart was carrying Orbit.
Dustin Cash was visiting his friend from Kentucky. He captured the incident on his phone and shared it on Snapchat.
"She was knocked out at first. Everybody thought she was hurt badly, but she seemed to be able to walk off without any major injuries," Cash said.

The Astros released a statement on Twitter Saturday about the woman's condition:
"A member of our Shooting Stars team was taken to the hospital this evening for precautionary x-rays. Her condition does not appear to be serious and we look forward to having her back with us soon."
The Astros have not identified the woman who was hit.
The Shooting Stars are a group of people who walk around Minute Maid Park during the game to help pump up the crowd, throw out souvenirs and dance in the dugouts.
