Incidents happen in sport in a blink of an eye. And it took precisely that long to leave this photographer with a lens smashed into pieces. Professional baseball player Tyler O’Neill sent a foul ball straight into his lens, and it was caught on the very camera that got hit.
When photographing sports, you always have to be ready to catch the perfect moment with your camera. And judging from the Tuesday night ceremonial first pitch, you also have to be ready to catch the ball with your camera, quite literally. This is what happened to photographer Darren Georgia, whose camera got the direct hit from “the worst first pitch ever.”
A group of sorority girls went to the MLB game between the Arizona Diamond Backs and the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday, but according to one of the MLB announcers, they might not have seen a single pitch the entire game.
The reason for this is that the selfie-obsessed Alpha Chi Omega sorority girls from Arizona seemed to be overly busy taking selfies. And more selfies. And then even more selfies.
Cameramen at sporting events often turn to film the crowd, but these girls received special attention for being so focused on filming themselves.
