Had the exact thing happen... but it was the back of my head. I saw the person on first break for second and got up/forward to make a throw before the ball reached the plate. Batter swung and smoked me in the back of the head. Luckily I had a full wrap around helmet/mask on.
I was a catcher for about 5-6 years when I was younger, I'll take a bat to the head over a ball to the nuts any day of the week
