The parents of a Lexington teen who was injured when she was hit by a softball while standing in a dugout are asking officials to improve safety.

Jay and Traci Doleman told the Lexington Herald-Leader that they don't want another high school athlete to suffer injuries like those of their 14-year-old daughter, Jayda.

The teen, who plays softball for Lafayette High School, suffered multiple eye socket fractures, permanent vision impairment, a concussion and a broken nose when she was hit.

Her parents say they would like to see higher fencing or netting installed in order to better protect players.

Fayette County school officials say they are planning safety enhancements to address the concerns.

The Dolemans also plan to talk to officials with the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.
