When a baseball comes flying at your head...

Today, Royals pitcher Jeremy Jeffress was faster than a speeding baseball.  Baseball is becoming a much more dangerous sport with the flying bats, baseballs, etc coming right at you.  Many times, ballparks have so much more things to do as well with many people at the park are looking at their cell phones more than they are at watching the game. 

But today, Jeffress was paying attention as he caught the linedrive back at him.  It was a fast-intstinct kind of play, but maybe a difference in winning or losing a game. 

I'm not sure what's more exciting for Kansas City fans, than having a winning baseball team.  It's been a long time.  But with more plays like this, you can count on the Royals to keep their winning season continuing.
