Talk about perfect timing. And incredible luck.

Tampa Bay Rays reporter Kelly Nash almost got plunked in the back of the head with a baseball this past weekend. And the near miss was captured by a once-in-a-lifetime selfie and posted to Instagram.

As the story goes, Nash was in Boston working on a feature on the Tampa Bay Rays. According to Nash, she wanted to snap a photo atop the Green Monster in Fenway Park because her whole family is from Massachusetts.

"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!" Nash told Fox Sports Florida.

"I laughed pretty hard when I saw such a surreal picture that I had no idea I took. I thought, you have got to be kidding me, maybe there ARE really angels in the outfield. I actually brought the movie with me on the trip and had it in my bag at the game."

Nash says that her producer found the ball and gave it to her, so at least she has some hard evidence of her near-serious injury experience.

Just add this to the growing list of reasons that self-shots are rarely ever a good idea.
