Video: LLWS player shatters camera lens with foul ball


After this year’s Little League World Series, ESPN might want to reconsider how they place their cameras on the field. During Saturday’s third place game between Tennessee and Panama, a camera was shattered after it took a foul ball to the lens, which is the second time it has happened this year.

A Tennessee player cracked a foul ball back towards the backstop and it smashed off the camera placed strategically behind home plate to give fans a different look.

It made a loud bang and the commentators new immediately that the camera was shattered.

Luckily, ESPN can foot the bill for these cameras, which are likely very expensive. However, I am sure they will rethink their placement of cameras on the field during next year’s Little League World Series.
