On Thursday’s Houston Matters: A young child was hospitalized last night after being struck by a foul ball during the fourth inning of the Astros game at Minute Maid Park. Sadly, sometimes at events like this fans get injured – and in rare cases even killed. We review a few such incidents and the policy changes they've set in motion.

Also this hour: Cannabidiol (aka CBD) has been in the news a lot lately and has been touted for its personal wellness benefits. We learn what exactly CBD is and what science knows about its health benefits.

Then our latest installment of The Bigger Picture explores the new film Booksmart, looking at the challenges students face balancing academics and social life.

And retired Navy Admiral William McRaven discusses his book Sea Stories: My Life In Special Operations.
