The unidentified fan was standing up behind the protective netting at PNC Park when Cubs shortstop Stalin Castro fouled it directly behind home plate.
The ball struck the woman who fell to the ground. Her condition was not immediately known.
Both teams tweeted that their thoughts and prayers are with the woman tonight.
