For a sports fan, being on the front lines of your favorite sport is a dream come true. It can also be dangerous. Fast moving balls and ball players are dangerous for any person who is not paying attention or unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

For Fox Sports sideline reporter Sophia Minnaert, this was the case. She was reporting live at the top of the third inning when a ball came out of nowhere and struck her in the hand. Being a professional, she continued reporting! Watch:


Ouch!! That had to hurt! What a trooper! Here’s what she tweeted later:

Talking defense so figured I’d play a little defense of my own. Appreciate all of the tweets!

 I think Sophia is a Jersey Girl! I hope her hand feels better!
Your Jersey Girlfriend,
