Reporter at Fenway almost hit with ball during selfie shot.Kelly Nash, a Florida sports reporter who covers the Tampa Bay Devil Rays was up in Massachusetts over the weekend, and decided to take in a Red Sox game at Fenway Park.

She headed up to the stands and decided to snap a self-portrait with her phone. Nash had no idea that while taking the picture, she was nearly missed by a ball hit out over the park’s Green Monster during batting practice.

Nash told Fox’s sports channel that she wasn’t aware that she had such a close call with the ball until she sat down with her phone and went through the pictures, trying to decide which pose to upload to Instagram. In one of the shots, the baseball appears only inches behind Nash’s head.

When she posted the picture, Nash appended the following caption: Most dangerous selfie ever. That happened.”

Her amazing shot is below.
