Milwaukee Brewers sideline reporter Sophia Minnaert was covering the Pirates vs Brewers game yesterday for Fox Sports Wisconsin when an errant foul ball struck her microphone. It came in with such velocity that it knocked the mic right out of her hand, into her face, and then onto the ground. I hope she washed it later.
When something gets on the dirty ground with all those germs you don’t want it close to your face. Minnaert was fine. She continued her segment, and finished it like a pro.
Watch as FOX Sports Wisconsin’s Sophia Minnaert is hit by a errant ball but is able to continue her report. What a pro! The incident happened between innings of the Brewers game on 5/25/13.
The FS Wis Brewers reporter gig was once held by Trenni Kusnierek. One of the seven “retired numbers” in Sports Bank history.
Her tweet from the Brewers game was very gracious
Talking #Brewers defense so figured I’d play a little defense of my own. Appreciate all of the tweets!
