Phillies fan hit in head by Anthony Rendon home run (Video)
The first run scored in the Washington Nationals’ 5-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday did damage to more than just the Phillies. A fan sitting in left field was actually hit in the head by second baseman Anthony Rendon’s solo home run in the fifth. You can see in the video that the fan tries to make a play on the ball, but it was hit so hard off Rendon’s bat the guy froze and was nailed on the left side of his face. The fan covers his head after being struck and appears to be in pain — no surprise given how hard the ball was hit. Hopefully his injuries weren’t serious, because that looked really bad.
