MLB fans narrowly escape severe injury

Two Tampa Bay Rays fans got very lucky on Tuesday night when a foul ball fired its way towards them and luckily it didn't cause serious injury to either of them.

The ball game saw the Baltimore Orioles travel to the home of the Rays, and Baltimore's Steve Pearce threatened the safety of fans when he ripped off a straight line drive at the top of the sixth inning.

Two Rays fans were discussing something in particular that had them distracted and meant that they weren't watching the game.

This decision could have been fatal, with the ball travelling at top speed and luckily only catching one of them on the shoulder.

The moment could have been very serious, much like Aroldis Chapman injury this season.

Thankfully for the fans concerned we didn't have a repeat of those horrific scenes.
