Brewers Sideline Reporter Gets Drilled With Baseball While Staring Into Camera, Shakes It Off

Fox Sports Wisconsin’s Sophia Minnaert was smack in the middle of one of those cross field dugout interviews, smack in the middle of the 3rd inning, when smack in the middle of a sentence she was smacked in the middle of doing her job. A true professional, she keep rolling — even managed to regain control of the mic – despite being hit in the hand that was holding it.

As to how it happened, one can only assume that someone was attempting to do the ol’ throw-it-in-the-dugout-before-the-inning-starts, and it got away from them. But the speed and angle of the ball suggest it was just kind of tossed at her from a relatively close distance, so she probably knows what happened and whodunnit. Unlike German soccer reporter Jessica Kastrop, who got popped from way downtown.

Wonder what Adrian Beltre would have done?

    Pretty sure she didn’t hold onto the mic Jake. Perhaps you should view the video before writing about it….

    I was suggesting she held on to the mic for the duration of the broadcast, as in it wasn’t hit into the dugout or destroyed. She picked it up. I did watch the video.

    The ball appeared to be at a low speed so shouldn’t have had much inertia behind it, and probably wouldn’t even leave a bruise.

    Ask Stuart Scott if getting bonk, bonk, bonked in the head is funny. Looks funny since no one was hurt but women nor men should be in he dugout during a game. She could have really gotten whacked.
