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.

Is there any doubt that Washington Nationals fever has caught on around the nation’s capital?

A couple living in Rockville, Md., recently decided to remodel the master bathroom in their home. The two are big baseball fans — and have become big Nationals fans the past few years — so they decided to have their bathroom customized with a Nationals theme.

The bathroom was done by Case Design/Remodeling, Inc., a company in Bethesda with whom they had previously worked.

Here are some of the features of the bathroom:

    – Custom Go Nats shower curtain
    – Curly W logo and stadium tiles in shower
    – Green glass tile on the floor to resemble grass
    – Tile shaped like home plate in front of the vanity
    – Rectangular-framed tiles that form batter’s boxes

There are more pictures of the bathroom below, including the baseball-themed batters box in front of the toilet and vanity.
