A dad attending a Twins-Indians game in Cleveland on Wednesday took a line drive to the head when his daughter ducked.

The mishap occurred during the top of the 6th inning, when the Twins' Ehire Adrianza hooked a drive foul to left-field.

Unfortunately, the ball caught the dad smack in the forehead, but only after his daughter, who was sitting in the seat in front, ducked.

The woman identified herself on Twitter, explaining that as she tried to catch it, she "flinched."

"He started laughing right after so he’s okay," she added.

The ball was thrown back to the pair, with the daughter once again failing to catch it, but this time her father was ready.

In a display of true fatherly love, he then presented her with the ball.
