Never Turn Your Back for the Pitch

Wow this is just cringe worthy.

Fan Struck By Foul Ball At PNC Park
The woman was standing in the first row behind home plate with her back toward the field when the Chicago Cubs’ Starlin Castro fouled a ball straight back against the protective screen. The ball was hit with such force that it struck the fan in the back of the head. 
“It hit the net, but it went through the net with such speed, so it hit the lady in the back of the head,” said Sean Truver, a witness. “I don’t know what she was doing; she was right behind the net and she fell down.” 
There’s no word yet on her condition, but Pirates’ officials say the was alert and conscious when was was taken away by ambulance.
