There is plenty to be excited about if you're a Red Sox fan, but that excitement was put on hold as one of their own went down in tonight's game. As Boston was going for win No. 100 this season, they baffled Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis, who accidentally let go of his bat while swinging at a pitch. The bat helicoptered into the stands and struck a fan in the head, leaving him covered in blood. 

As soon as Travis let go of that bat, he knew it was bad news.

At first, it looked like a souvenir for a lucky fan. It quickly took a turn for the worse, as the camera panned to the man who was holding his bloody forehead. 

Not everyone supports the idea of extending the netting past the dugout, as it obstructs the view from those along the baselines, but it would prevent scary incidents like this. Luckily, the fan immediately received attention from security and local fans in the area. 

This could have been a lot worse, which is only further proof that fans should be protected during the game at all times.
