MOBILE, Ala. (WCTV) -- During Wednesday night's game between the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp and the Mobile BayBears, a foul ball caused havoc not in the stands, but in the broadcast booth.

Jumbo Shrimp broadcaster Roger Hoover took to Twitter following a foul ball that entered the booth and shattered his laptop.

On Thursday, Hoover shared the call from the broadcast, showing how difficult the play-by-play job can be, as he described in real time the ball coming, and the aftermath.

The Shrimp fell to the BayBears, 3-1, in the series opener.
