We've all had many "Close Call" moments. I've had so many......but the other day....I recalled two moments I had many years ago. ** Let's try to keep the INJURED "Close Calls" out of this thread.*** . #1......I was standing next to a teammate who was swinging his bat in the "On Deck" circle. This bat was a "home made" lead weighted bat. Someone drilled it out + poured hot lead into the barrel. It was heavy as hell.....ALOT of solid lead in it. We had it around for 2 seasons........until....... the guy is swinging it + the lead flies OUT, so fast + far - JUST PASSED MY HEAD ! The lead landed over a fence some 25 yds away ! . #2.......I was in a small toyota corolla -- that was one of those tiny ones made in the early 70's. REAL SMALL. I was in the passenger front seat.....no seat belt, of course. I don't remember the "what or why" of the incident ? We were barrelling thru OPEN RANGE territory of northern Texas at 90 mph. Came around a bend at 90 mph + straight into a huge herd of beef cattle. They were all over the road ! They were BIGGER than the damn small toyota ! We zigged + zagged at that speed + somehow avoided all of them. It happenned so fast I wasn't even breathing. When we made it thru -- I always remember -- the sigh of released air from our mouths and we just started to both uncontrollably giggle. (?):evillaugh It seemed so strange of a reaction ? * Like I said....try to keep the Injured Close calls out of this thread..okay ? So....give me yours !
