Brewers reporter hit by ball while on camera

Remember last month, when Rays reporter Kelly Nash took a self portrait on Instagram and nearly got beaned by a home run ball in the process? Brewers reporter Sophia Minnaert didn't get nearly as lucky as Nash did, as on Saturday, she actually ended up getting hit by a ball while on camera.

Before the third inning on Saturday, Minnaert was giving the Fox Sports Wisconsin audience her report when she was hit in the right hand by a ball out of nowhere. Her mic went flying, and Minnaert looked stunned for a second before picking her mic back up and continuing her report., eventually getting some kudos for Milwaukee's commentary team in the booth

It's pretty amazing that Minnaert didn't get hurt, and I'm surprised we don't see this happen more often. Thankfully, everything worked out well for her.
