Video: Fan nearly gets beheaded by foul ball at Orioles-Rays game

This fan is so incredibly lucky that it seems unreal.

The brush with near decapitation came during Tuesday night's game between the Rays and Orioles at Tropicana Field when Baltimore's Steve Pearce yanked a pitch foul off into the front row of seats behind the third base dugout.

As you can see, the smoking liner comes within inches of smacking the unsuspecting fan in the white shirt in the face. And rest assured that the impact would have hurt too.

Always keep your head on a swivel at a baseball game. Especially when you're sitting in the front row and near home plate.
