Boston Red Sox fans might want to watch out if they plan on being at Oakland Coliseum for the team’s upcoming series against the Athletics.
The A’s earned a 9-6 win over the Mariners in Seattle on Tuesday, and they first took the lead in the second inning, when Oakland third baseman Ryon Healy hit a two-run moonshot that traveled an estimated 446 feet into the upper deck at Safeco Field. But it came at a price for the A’s, as Healy’s home run managed to smash a fan’s phone.
But there’s a happy ending to the story, as the Athletics agreed to get Peter Johnson a new phone. They even included a GIF of Healy to make up for it.
The best part might be the video of the home run, though. You can see a person who appears to be Johnson throw his hands in the air after the ball lands in the stands.
The Red Sox travel to Oakland on Thursday to begin a four-game series with the A’s. Fans probably should keep their phones in their pockets, just in case.
