Giancarlo Stanton hit a laser over the wall in the New York Yankees’ win over of the Minnesota Twins at Yankees Stadium on Thursday night and one young fan got a very close look at the ball.
As Stanton’s ball cruised over the wall, it hit the Yankees fan right in the forehead and bounced a few rows back.

Luckily, the kid was not hurt.
In fact, he was hooked up with another ball later in the game.
Don’t worry, Angel hooked him up! Kid seems to be ok pic.twitter.com/3ncMjN9mYK
