Oblivious fan nearly killed by Steve Pearce line foul (Video)


There was almost a death by foul ball in Tuesday night’s Baltimore-Tampa Bay game.

Check out the fan in the white shirt nearly getting a face full of Steve Pearce’s line shot in the sixth.



That would have been a full on shot right to the mush. At the very least, that guy would have needed medical attention. That could have been a serious plastic surgery bill for him.

White Shirt Guy forgot the golden rule when you’re sitting down close to the action. Pay attention at all times.

Let your attention wander even for a second and you could wind up with a foul ball right in the kisser.

White Shirt Guy was lucky that time. Hopefully he will learn a lesson from this.

Keep your eye on the ball at all times when you are sitting close. Also, always use your turn signal.

That second one doesn’t really relate to baseball, it’s just a good rule that people need to observe more often.

Seriously people. Use the signal. Too many idiots out there on the roads not signaling.

And don’t get me started about the drive thru line. Know what you want to order before you pull up to the box. Stop making me sit there while you figure it out.

That’s so irritating.
