Kelly Nash, a TV reporter for Sun Sports Rays, shot an awe-inspiring self-portrait at Boston's Fenway Park on Saturday, when she captured a stray ball just missing her head.
Nash was snapping some photographs of herself while passing time before the Red Sox took on the Astros, she explained to Fox Sports Florida
. "My whole family is from Massachusetts, and I knew they would be so excited to see me working at Fenway Park," she said, "and when I went to text them the picture I noticed the baseball by my head!"
But the reporter adds that she had been given a fair warning about stray balls while she snapped away.
"Producer Art Dryce had called out 'heads up!' a few times while I was taking pictures around the left field section, but none of those balls actually fell close to me, so I took my chances turning my back on batting practice for a picture," she said.
Whether it was her good luck, or her trusty copy of the 1994 film Angels in the Outfield
that saved Nash from a potential injury, she's laughing about it now.
"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."
