Unaware Fan Hit In The Neck By Home Run Ball (Video)

Watching balls fly into the stands at high speeds is all part of the game of baseball.  As a result, you will find plenty of signs around every Major League stadium reminding fans to “be aware of objects leaving the field of play.”

Coincidentally, one man present at Petco Park for yesterday’s game between the San Diego Padres and the San Francisco Giants just so happened to be standing right beside one of those signs when he was beaned in the neck by a Will Venable home run in the bottom of the first inning.

This definitely isn’t a good way to start your day at the ball park.
