That’s Sun Sports Rays reporter Kelly Nash at Fenway Park in Boston on Saturday. During batting practice, she decided to snap a picture of herself at the historic ball field. Her producer had warned her earlier that the balls were flying pretty close, but Nash decided to take a chance. She explains what happened next.

“My whole family is from Massachusetts,” she told Fox Sports, “and I knew they would be so excited to see me working at Fenway Park, and when I went to text them the picture I noticed the baseball by my head!

“I laughed pretty hard when I saw such a surreal picture that I had no idea I took. I thought, you have got to be kidding me, maybe there ARE really angels in the outfield. I actually brought the movie with me on the trip and had it in my bag at the game.”

The ball didn’t hit her, luckily, but she did get a souvenir.

“Art had picked up what we think was that ball and gave it to me after we saw in the photo how close it came to my head.”
