MLB.com Reporter's Worst Nightmare Comes True: Laptop Busted by Foul Ball
[mlbvideo id="33409517" width="600" height="400" /]
Well, this reporter is going to miss deadline.
Mark Sheldon, the Reds beat reporter for MLB.com, was just about to file his game story for Cincinnati's 8-3 win over the Giants on Tuesday night when Pablo Sandoval ruined his night.
The Panda hit a foul ball with two outs in the top of the eighth, shattering the reporter's laptop and his spirit based on his head hang when he saw the damage.
Here's Sheldon's game recap. No word on how he completed it — on his phone? Borrowing a colleague's computer in the press box? Old-fashioned phoning it in?
Either way, well done, sir.
Dear @MLB, Mark's recap may be delayed. RT @m_sheldon: RIP my laptop. Sandoval foul hit it #redspic.twitter.com/13oTqEyZ2j[MLB.com Cut4]
