Well, this is a hell of an occupational hazard for a baseball beat reporter.
During the top of the eighth inning of Tuesday night’s Giants/Reds tilt in Cincinnati, Pablo Sandoval fouled one up into the press box. There are lots of targets up there, and the ball found one in Mark Sheldon’s Thinkpad.
Check out the priceless reaction:
Sheldon’s subsequent tweet indicates a confirmed kill:

The Reds won the game, 8-3, although it’s a little unclear as to how Sheldon communicated as much to MLB.com.
