The Boston Red Sox may be having success in the 2013 MLB postseason, but this fan was not as lucky as his team.

For those who mock fans for taking gloves to games, this will serve as a painful lesson.

The fan had no chance to move his head out of the way after the ball took an unexpected bounce. Although his face may not feel the greatest, he will certainly be happy if his team is able to take a 2-0 lead to Tampa Bay.

Thanks to MLB's Cut4 for the find.
