VIDEO: Boston Red Sox fan makes bad misplay, takes ball in face

  • David Whitlock

One of the most enviable fan seats are those on the first row down the baselines, seems like they’re always getting ground balls or even soft toss free baseballs.  Plus you’re right there on the front row to see the action.  Just ask Steve Bartman! This Boston Red Sox fan’s dream turned into a nightmare (not quite a Bartman nightmare) when a relatively sharp grounder during the Sox playoff game against the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday  took a hop he couldn’t handle and clocked him in the face (via @Cut4 @dan_wohl)


This fan is no match for the ball (via @Cut4)

Do not give this man a contract
(via @dan_wohl / @Cut4)

Maybe that’s why you bring a glove to the game? It’s not like this was on national TV or anything, I’m sure his coworkers will have a good laugh at his expense around the water cooler on Monday!

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
