Sorry, but unless that girl is some sort of retard or something, it's up to her to GTFO.

That said, what kind of pansy doesn't try to catch that ball?

My father used to take me to OHL games (kinda like university hockey but in Ontario but not the same as slavery and not run by schools) when I was a kid.  I liked to sit behind the visitor's goal and high up enough that we'd be  more or less level with the glass.  He told me before every game that I had better pay attention whenever the play was coming towards us because he couldn't guarantee that I wouldn't get a puck in the head.

I was 10 and able to accomplish that.

/CSB:  There was one game where a point shot got tipped a few feet away from the blue line and I had to duck out of the way.  I would have been fine, but my pa's reaction was to catch it.  Luckily his hands are made of scar tissue and leather (he works with sheet metal as part of his job) and he showed me his hand after he caught it.  The puck was rotating enough that the rubber actually made a black imprint on his palm when he caught it.  I was duly impressed, and I still am to this day

Maybe she should be paying attention.

iamskibibitz: Two things to keep in mind here:

1) It was a line drive. Line drives tend to carry due to the back spin.
2) It was to center(ish) field. Balls hit to center field are the hardest to judge (I've played all three outfield positions).

So my guess is that the ball was hit and It looked like to the couple from their vantage point like a routine fly out. Next thing they know it's right on top of them and there really wasn't time to think...


If you think that was a line drive, you have played zero outfield positions.

CSB:

Used to catch in high school.  Took a few foul tips off the throwing hand on hit and run attempts when I was moving the hand up for a quich throw should the batter whiff.  1 dislocation and 4 broken fingers over the course of a few years.  It stings a bit for an hour or so and yeah I've had the stitch marks from the ball but they go away.  And that's about as hard as your going to ever get hit in the hand barring a batter faking a bunt and lining one right at a fielder moving in.

End CSB

The moral is, it only hurts for a little bit so you don't NEED a glove because dropping it doesn't risk a baserunner or run.  AND if you save your GF from a broken nose and end up with a break in your hand, she's pretty much obligated to make it steak and BJ day EVERYDAY until the splint comes off.

Depending on your age and location of break that's about 3 weeks.

We all know females like to hold grudges.  30 years from now they will be in an argument: "Just like the time you let that baseball hit me???!!!"

If only the ball made a sound coming off the bat that would alert people to the fact that something has happened.

He was standing in front of her and moved just in time for it to hit her.  Kind of hard for her to react.  This guy went full on douche.

Look, there are certain obligations of a boyfriend.  Kill spiders, go to chick flicks, snuggle on demand, and keep strange balls out of her face.
