The baseball tradition of throwing back a home run ball from a player of the opposing team reached a new level today. Giancarlo Stanton was a victim of a Boston Red Sox fan not appreciating his home run.
The fan threw the baseball back and it somehow had enough mustard to hit Stanton while running the bases.

Stanton was a good sport about it after the game. He was just happy to get the ball back from his 100th RBI without having to pay the fan for it.
