Last night's Red Sox game was set to honor the Jimmy Fund at the end of their annual telethon, as well as the 1967 "Impossible Dream" team. But 17 year old pediatric cancer survivor Jordan Leandre accidentally stole the show with the most epic first pitch ever.

Leandre, after being told to "fire it in there" let the pitch fly and sailed it way outside, where it got past the catcher and hit a local photographer standing off to the side. But the real story is where it hit the photographer.

The photographer, Tony Capobianco, actually managed to take a photo as the ball was sailing toward him, though some would argue covering himself might have been a better idea.

Fortunately, both Leandre and Capobianco have a good sense of humor about the situation.
