A makeup artist who claims she suffered a brain bleed when she was hit in the head with a baseball bat while watching a training game says she still suffers from memory loss and constant headaches four years later.

Alexandra 'Allie' Binkowski, 24, grew up in Ottawa, Canada, but always followed the Chicago Cubs and, when she left home, she would watch games three or four times a week.

But in March 2015, while watching the Cubs in a spring training game, the day turned into a nightmare.

A player swung his bat around, accidentally let go of it, and it soared into Binkowski's head. She says the force threw her off her chair, and when she landed the bat fell down on the back of her neck.

'I had the nerves burnt off in my face, head and neck to help with the pain. I also had a stimulator put in under the skin in my lower back to help the headaches by stimulating the nerves, but it was unsuccessful so I'm having it removed,' she said.
