Nationals fan hit in head trying to catch Victor Robles home run

Washington Nationals

Victor Robles’ home run on Wednesday night gave most Washington Nationals fans a reason to celebrate, though one probably feels differently about it.

A fan sitting in center field near the bullpen took Robles’ home run ball off the head. The fan actually had a glove and made an attempt to catch it but missed and ended up being struck by the ball:

Here’s what it looked like from a distance:

The exit velocity on the home run ball was 102.4 mph, so it definitely had the potential to injure the fan. A fan even died after being hit by a foul ball at a Dodgers game last year.

We’re hoping the fan ended up OK despite being hit.
