HOUSTON – Brian Cariota, the Houston Paramedic hit by a foul ball during Sunday’s American League Championship Series game, is out of the hospital.

The Harris County Emergency Corps (HCEC) wrote on Facebook Cariota will continue his recovery while at home and will continue to root for the Astros.

His wife, Cori Cariota, previously said her husband does not blame the Astros or the batter who hit the ball for what happened.

“Brian is a top-notch paramedic and supervisor,” said Jeremy Hyde, CEO at HCEC. “Our HCEC family continues to keep him and his family in our thoughts and prayers as he recovers.”
