Ruth hits Bonds with ball from the beyond

Chasing Ruth can be dangerous.

Bonds was just hit in the forehead by a batting practice foul ball.

Bonds was struck less than an hour after he said he didn't think passing Ruth for No. 2 on all-time homer list would be that big a deal.

"It's Hank Aaron's record," Bonds said. "And I will always live by, it's Hank Aaron's record."

Could Bonds have inadvertently riled up the same curse that kept the Boston Red Sox from glory all those years?

Spectators who saw Bonds commented on his abnormally large head.

After being hit:

Bonds yelped, then let out an expletive.
