Well tonight after our game my ward was playing and didn't have enough players so they recruited most of my team to play, so we did just for fun. About 3/4 into the game I was at 3rd base and the ball was thrown over first so I decided to make a run for home. I was almost there and decided to slide into the plate. I was halfway down and all of a sudden things just go black. The next thing I know i'm laying on the plate and everyone is staring at me. I got hit in the jaw with the ball! I didn't even really feel a whole lot of pain but the ump was staring at me like I was dead. I just grabbed my jaw got up and said I'm okay. They kept asking me over and over if I was but I really was okay.
The weird thing is it didn't even hurt. It wasn't some cheap throw either cause it was a guy and threw it right to my face. Since the game was almost over I just sat the rest out with a cold water bottle on my face. Everybody kept coming to look at me, asked me if I had all my teeth, and if I was alright. I must be doing something right because you would think getting hit in the face would be pretty painful. All the guys kept calling me tough because they said if it were them they'd be crying.
I just went home and put some ice on it and it only hurts when I try to eat or laugh so don't make me laugh! lol I'm thinking I'm going to have a pretty big bruise tomorrow though. Needless to say I'll still be playing next week. :)
