WATCH: Sports Reporter Gets Pelted By Foul Ball During Game — Does She Rally?

Fox Sports Milwaukee reporter Sophia Minnaert makes all other sideline reporters look frail by comparison. While delivering a live report during a Milwaukee Brewers game this weekend, an errant toss came flying into the dugout, smacking directly into her microphone, knocking it into her face and then onto the ground.

And she continued on with her report like it never happened. “Like a pro,” her in-studio colleagues exclaimed.

Undeterred by the incident, Minnaert grabbed her microphone off the floor and finished up her on-camera delivery. When offered medical assistance by the team’s trainer, she waved him off, assuring him she was totally unharmed.

Thankfully she was holding a handheld microphone as opposed to wearing a lapel mic, which would not have been able to soften the blow from the ball.
