Kelly Nash, the Tampa Bay Rays reporter for Sun Sports was in Boston's Fenway Park over the weekend to do some advance reporting for her network. On Saturday, she decided to go to Fenway's famed Green Monster seats to take some pictures from the park to show to her family.
Nash was in the seats during batting practice and as she put in her own words:
"(My producer) 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."
As she felt it was safe, Kelly turned her back to the field and quickly snapped a pic. As she would find out later, a ball came quite close to hitting her square on the ol' noggin. The odds of snapping that picture at that exact moment are astronomical, so astronomical in fact that Nash will be on GMA tomorrow morning to talk about the self-portrait.
"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."
Kelly is pretty lucky that she didn't get hit. And the moral of the story, kids? Never turn your back on batting practice especially if you're standing on top of the Green Monster

Kelly Nash is a Fox Sports sideline reporter covering the Tampa Bay Rays. As you can tell from the photos, her job is largely influenced by her looks. Probably had a lot to do with how she got this sweet gig. So getting a batting practice home run ball to the face would likely not be the best thing to happen to Kelly Nash and her media career.
And it actually came “this...
