See neurologist: It depends which finger and what brings the tingling on...If it is the 2nd, 3rd digit numbness, it may be carpal tunnel or ulanr neuropathy if the 4th and fifth...
It may come from a pinched nerve in the neck if you shooting pains from the neck down to a specific area.
Or it may be from a more spreadout proces involving damage to the nerve endings.
Best to see neurologist.

Numbness and tingling in bruised fingers after being hit by baseball?

Bruised nerves: I assume the baseball hit the hand. Trauma that injures nerves will cause some numbness and tingling as the nerves recover. Dead nerves do not hurt or tingle, it is recovering nerves that give strange sensations. A thorough medical evaluation would be appropriate.
