Moment Trump hits kid in the head with a baseball while sitting next to Melania at the World Series

DONALD Trump accidentally hit a child on the head with a baseball at the World Series over the weekend.

The former president was with his wife Melania at the game between the Braves and Houston Astros in Atlanta last Saturday when the mishap occurred.

Footage shows Trump – who once boasted he could have been a pro player – catching a ball thrown to him by a youngster in the crowd to sign.

He calls out "was that a good catch" before the crowd cheers "yes."

The Republican then attempts to return the ball but hits a boy in the crowd.


In the clip the ball hits the youngster on the top of the head.

He was not injured, according to TMZ.

Trump – who has previously spoken of his love for baseball – appears to not notice.

And on Saturday he participated in the "tomahawk chop" cheer that many have criticized for being an offensive stereotype of Native American culture.

Braves CEO Terry McGuirk said Donald reached out to the team for tickets.

Trump had released a statement in a mass email to his supporters on Saturday about his planned World Series appearance.


He wrote: “Looking forward to being at the World Series in Atlanta tonight.

"Thank you to the Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred, and Randy Levine of the New York Yankees, for the invite.

"Melania and I are looking forward to a wonderful evening watching two great teams!"

MLB denied making the invitation and said in a statement: “He requested to attend the game.”

In 2004 Trump said: "I was supposed to be a pro baseball player.

"At the New York Military Academy, I was captain of the baseball team. I worked hard like everyone else, but I had good talent.”

He also ridiculed Dr. Anthony Fauci's pitch as "the worst first pitch in the history of Baseball" in a tweet last year.
