Ouch! That had to hurt.

CelebnSports247.com reports that the scene was scary for a moment when the ball hit the kid between the eyes during New York’s game against the Minnesota Twins at Yankee Stadium.
Heavy Hitter Giancarlo Stanton hit a laser beam to the right field. The ball was absolutely crushed — it left the park in less than 3 seconds — but on its way down, it collided with a kid’s face.
You can see in the broadcast footage, the Pinstripes fan tried to get his glove up to make the grab … but the ball still found its way right to the top of his dome.
Poor kid, he probably is gonna have a souvenir lump on his forehead for a while.

Video, though, later showed the fan was luckily able to shake off the knock … and eventually, he was rewarded with a ball from one of the umps on the field!!
