Have you ever watched a baseball game and laughed when people behind home plate flinch when a ball comes towards because they forget they are sitting behind protective netting?  It’s always hilarious. What if that netting wasn’t so protective? That’s what happened to one fan at Nationals Park Saturday night who was hit in the shoulder by a baseball that ripped the backstop netting. If Baseball Gods existed, they would’ve allowed that ball to hit the lady to the left instead.  On her phone and not even looking towards the field, die-hard Natinals. One fan who was sitting a few rows behind the victim posted this picture on Twitter. @Deadspin I was sitting 5 rows behind her. Here are two pics I took. 1 pic.twitter.com/JC5vpWpmA8 — andrew tabach (@andrewtabs) July 21, 2013 Source: [Deadspin] The post Baseball Rips Through Backstop Netting, Hits Fan appeared first on Ride The Pine.
