Orioles Outfielder Steve Pearce Almost Killed Someone Yesterday

| by Jonathan Wolfe

Orioles left fielder Steve Pearce nearly blew someone’s head off last night.

In yesterday's Orioles – Rays game, Pearce sent a foul ball scorching over the Orioles’ dugout. The ball missed the face of a fan sitting in the front row by about a millimeter. The craziest part about this clip is that the fan moves his head ever so slightly at the last millisecond before the ball arrives. Had he not done that, the ball looks like it would have smashed right into his temple.

Given that the ball was probably travelling at over 100mph, you can probably imagine what would've happened to this guy if he'd been hit. 

Those $5 nosebleed seats don’t seem so bad after all, do they?
