A certain New York Yankee slugger should beware: A 13-year-old taking a tour of Fenway Park yesterday was attacked by a red-tailed hawk that swooped down from its nest, drawing blood from the girl's scalp.
Her name: Alexa Rodriguez.
"She's fine, a little shaken but OK," said Vince Jennetta, a teacher who chaperoned Rodriguez's trip from Memorial Boulevard Middle School in Bristol, Conn.
The eighth-grader was taken by ambulance to a local hospital and was treated for the small scratch on her scalp.

You can't make this stuff up.
Nature hates the Yankees too!
Are you saying it's on steroids? ;-D
WHy does a "small scratch" require an ambulance, and a hospital? Couldn't someone have just put some alcohol and a bandiad on it?
I bet John Edwards knows why.
Sounds like a terrorist plot. George Steinbrenner is running around Yankee Stadium closing the windows and installing lucite desks.
“COSTANZA’S IN THE BUILDING!!!!”
Probably just a precaution, you never know how a lawsuit will pop up.
Yeah, you’re right. It’s really a waste of resources though.
That calzone man is still mad about George stealing his tip money.
True. What does he know about cooking a shirt?
Strangely believe it, my wife was the object of a similar incident. We were at a Florida campground and sitting at the picnic table. A red shouldered hawk was flitting around the live oaks above us for a long time.
It suddenly swoooped down and headed directly for my wife’s head and when perhaps five feet away flared, put on brakes and zoomed overhead. It was coming right at us at eye level, I could see it in extreme detail.
I was at a Tiger game years ago and saw a little girl directly behind the plate holding on to the protective netting with both hands and her face against the net catch a foul-tip right in the nose........that definitely left a mark.
Am I the only one who noticed this? Fowl are birds for eating. Hawks are birds of prey, not so good for eating.
