Sun Sports Rays reporter Kelly Nash, while working on a future "Inside the Rays" at Fenway Park, unknowingly captured a photo of a batting practice homer that almost landed on her head, which makes for perhaps the greatest self-portrait of all time.

Nash was atop the Green Monster when she took a selfie photo to commemorate the occasion, and very narrowly avoided a massive headache.

Via Fox Sports:

"Producer Art Dryce had called out 'heads up!' a few times while I was taking pictures around the left field section, but none of those balls actually fell close to me, so I took my chances turning my back on batting practice for a picture. My whole family is from Massachusetts, and I knew they would be so excited to see me working at Fenway Park, and when I went to text them the picture I noticed the baseball by my head!"

The story only gets more sensational from there: Nash attributes her escape to the Angels in the Outfield DVD that she just happened to be carrying at the time.

(Thanks to Fox Sports and The Big Lead for bringing this to our attention.)
