That was LL. If it can happen in LL it can happen in your league too. A HSM will protect your whole head. btw did anyone see the Braves vs Marlins game the previous season? It was where (I think it was Davis) that got hit with a top of a bat that broke off, swung around & caught him under chin & ended the game early for him. He's fine but a few days later he was calling a game w/ a huge mark on the side of his face!
If you're positioned properly a thrown bat will not be able to hit you in the back of the head. They say lightening can strike out of a clear blue sky. I suppose we should start dragging around an electrode with us to keep safe from that anomaly too.
