Keep your eye on the ball
The number one rule when it comes to ball sports is to keep your eye on the ball at all times. Even when you are in the crowd you should make sure you’re aware of where the ball is, especially in a sport like baseball.
This woman thought she was safe to take a selfie but forgot the golden rule of baseball arenas, even when a game is not being played. She might have seen it coming through the screen on her phone, but by then it would have been too late, and the damage would have already been done.
One of the greatest things about sports is how unpredictable it is. Even when you’ve got the best team against the worst, the odds can be upset, and we see an underdog win. It’s that unpredictability that keeps people coming back for more, season after season. At most major sporting events there are now tons of TV cameras and photographers waiting in the wings to snap the perfect shot.
That means over the years there have been a bucket load of unfortunate or hilarious moments caught on film that were shot at the perfect time. Sometimes it’s a player making a big mistake, or other times it’s an athlete’s struggle that gets people laughing through the intensity of their facial expression.
