Oh there's a baseball coming at my head, I'd better gracefully move out of the way

That's a long title and that's a lot of thinking to do when an errant baseball is heading for you.  I don't know if I've ever gotten a baseball in the head (I'd probably remember or, well, maybe not) but it's something I fear at baseball games.  Tonight at my son's game, a ball headed to the side of the field where I was sitting and I was ready to take evasive action.  And then I felt silly.  And I wondered about whether trying not to look silly would enter into my thought process if a baseball really was heading for me.  I hope not.  I know that I might look odd if I jump at every little threat but I think that avoiding getting hit on the head with a very hard and fast ball is a worthwhile pursuit.  So I will keep actively watching the games I attend and try to move out of the way if a ball is heading for me.  Or maybe I should just wear a helmet.  I'm not always in a mood to chat and that would probably take care of that issue too.
