The Best and (Un)Luckiest Selfie Ever Taken?

That’s the photo that everyone and their mother is posting about. I saw it this weekend, and yes… it’s incredible. Yes, Kelly Nash is a cute girl. I find it interesting that nobody would be posting this pic if she actually got blasted in the head because it might’ve freaking killed her. Lucky gal. (Feels silly to call her lucky when in reality, it was insanely unlucky that of all the places a ball could be hit in a ball park, that one came within inches of her dome.)

She spoke about it here:

“I was taking a picture of myself in the seats above the Green Monster during Red Sox batting practice.

“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.

“My whole family is from Massachusetts, and I knew they would be so excited to see me working at Fenway Park, and when I went to text them the picture I noticed the baseball by my head!

Now can we talk about one of the comments she got on instagram? Good.

    I don’t believe this happened at all. During batting practice, there are usually infielders taking ground balls, and outfielders shagging fly balls. Throw in people in lower rows of stands trying to get foul balls.

      I have no idea what anything that you just said has to with whether or not this happened. She was standing on top of the Green Monster… a ball came flying by her head as she took a picture. Which part didn’t happen?

      You’re saying you think it’s a photoshop job? I’m confused.
