Kelly Nash is the new Tampa Bay Rays sideline reporter we told you about earlier this year. This gig with the Rays is her first big full-time job in baseball and she’s been busy documenting the ride. On Saturday, Nash tweeted a selfie from batting practice before the Astros-Red Sox game.
She just happened to be in town shooting a future story for Fox Sports Florida when this moment was captured.
“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!”
Let this be a lesson, rookie sideline reporters. Always be careful when taking selfies at the ballpark. You never know when you could suffer a career-ending BP shot to the head.
