10 Times Professional Sports Figures Photobombed Their Unsuspecting Fans...

Athletes are usually known for their expert play in their respective sports.

Yet, as the years go on and the art of the selfie continues to grow in popularity, athletes are quickly becoming known for their “expert” photobombing skills.

Much like professional golfers, Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker:

Or most of the players for the Baltimore Ravens:

Even Clemson head coach, Dabo Swinney, has perfected the “Dabobomb”:

And some athletes don't even need to photobomb unsuspecting fans to give them a priceless moment. In fact, they can play imaginary baseball with a young fan without the kid ever realizing he's playing with a pitcher for his favorite baseball team.

Like Sean Doolittle of the Oakland A's and this adorable little guy:

Other times, athletes have devised an entire diabolical plan to photobomb fans having fun in a photo booth:

Or maybe scare — errrr, surprise — people in the stands with a hug-bomb?

Sometimes they even flip the script and take selfies with unsuspecting fans found wearing their jersey in some really cool places.

Like Bryce Harper at the Smithsonian Museum in D.C.:

Just some shenanigans on the off day at the @smithsonian Natural History museum! #DC

Or when a fan walks right by Phillies pitcher, Roy Halladay, who secretly takes a photo of the wild moment:

They can even catch their tiniest fans off guard in the middle of a game:

But what about the times when the fans are “bold” enough to photobomb their favorite athletes?

My, how the tables can turn.
