Headline Goes Here

BOSTON - Tampa Bay Rays reporter, and former Local 10 intern, Kelly Nash was nearly hit by a baseball, but didn't discover the near-miss until she posted a self-photo online.

Nash took the self-shot picture, or selfie, while watching batting practice at Fenway Park in Boston before a game she was working with Fox Sports Florida.

Nash wanted to take a picture of her experience for her family, who is from Massachusetts.

According to, Nash's producer warned her several times to watch out for baseballs flying into their area. However, Nash decided to turn her back to the field and snap a photo.

While reviewing her photos, one picture caught her eye. Nash discovered a ball nearly knocked her in the head while she was taking a self-photo.

In the picture, a baseball can be seen just inches to the right of Nash, capturing the moment just before the ball whizzed by the reporter.

"Most dangerous selfie ever," Nash wrote on Instagram. "That happened."

Nash interned in the Local 10 sports department in 2010
