A New Jersey boy who stopped breathing when he was hit in the chest by a baseball during a Little league game is home from the hospital.

Ian McGreevey is expected to make a full recovery.

His father, Ken, tells The Record newspaper it was the best present his wife could receive on Mother's Day.

The 8-year-old Northvale resident was playing on Saturday when he tried to steal third base and was hit in the chest by a ball thrown by the catcher. The boy collapsed.

The mother of a player from the opposing team, Maureen Renaghan, checked the boy's pulse and began performing CPR. She managed to get him breathing before paramedics arrived.

The third-grader will wear a heart monitor for the time being.
