MORRISTOWN, NJ - Chatham softball pitcher Melissa Landry will remain in Morristown Medical Center through at least Wednesday, as the result of the injuries caused when she was hit in the face with a batted ball on Tuesday.

"It's more extensive than a broken nose," Robert Landry, her father reported. "She is resting comfortably."

Landry, a 16-year-old sophomore, was struck with the batted ball just above her top lip, breaking her nose and causing damage to her face, in the top of the fourth inning of a game against Sparta on Tuesday at the middle school.

She was rushed to the hospital and was operated on 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning to "repair damage to her face," according to her father.

"We want to thank the community, and not just the Chatham softball community, but everyone for all the well wishes," Robert Landry said. "She's been receiving support from all over the state, thanks to NJ Pride on twitter."

Did you know….
there was a time when Chatham kids could ice skate from downtown Chatham all the way to Florham Park? And that a toboggan ride could last from the top of Fairmount Avenue down to Main Street and beyond?
