Woman Takes Foul Ball to Face, Makes Play on Next 2 Chances

Most of us go our entire baseball-watching existence without ever coming within 50 feet of a foul ball. A woman sitting down the first base line at Wednesday night's Blue Jays-Rays game had not one, not two, but three foul balls hit directly at her.

She tried to catch the first one with her face. Predictably, the ball ricocheted into the field of play and she was left with a sore nose and a bruised ego. Undeterred, the woman cleanly fielded the next two attempts, and even gave one souvenir to a fan sitting nearby.

The lesson: don't give up. Even after you take one in the gourd.
