Sometimes cheering for your team can be painful.
This Tampa Bay Rays fan can attest to that after taking a home run ball hit by Will Middlebrooks to the face during Wednesday's affair against the Boston Red Sox.
The moment came in the top of the eighth inning, with the Sox already leading 8-2, when Middlebrooks smacked a drive into the right field seats. As you can see, the ball ricochets off a fan's hands in the front row, and ends up nailing the unsuspecting man in the face.
Furthermore, the wounded fan was forced to endure Boston routing the home squad, 9-2.
