A line drive foul ball at Thursday night's Florida Marlins-Washington Nationals game in D.C. went into the seats.

The ball hit a plastic beer bottle being held by a woman, splashing the beer on her head. It was caught on tape.

She appeared fine -- though somewhat stunned, and amused.

The announcers reminded everyone that beer is sometimes also used as a shampoo. And they suggested that everyone around her pitch in to buy her a new beer!
