CHALK THIS ONE down to experience.

Sun Sports reporter Kelly Nash narrowly avoided getting beaned by a home run ball when she turned her back on batting practice at Fenway Park over the weekend. To take a selfie.

Via Fox Sports: “Producer Art Dryce had called out ‘heads up!’ a few times while I was taking pictures around the left field section,” Nash explained, “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!”
