For all the tough talk about taking a hit in sports, sometimes avoiding contact is more than worth it.
Tim Federowicz (L.A. Dodgers) and Danny Valencia (Baltimore Orioles) proved as much last night, avoiding errant pitches and saving themselves some pain in the process.
Granted, avoiding a wild fast ball at the plate is routine. A fan, however, took similar safety measures when it came to a fly ball. Catch the souvenir? Not for her.
Finally there's the dumping of the gatorade tank. The sneak attack drenching, however, is hard to avoid, as Kansas City's David Lough found out last night.
