Thanks for the reply.

I was playing catch with my friend. We are about 15 feet apart. Again he didnt whip the ball or anything. It was a real baseball. He threw it casually but I missed it and it hit me on the left side of my mouth, slightly above the lip. This happened about a week ago.

I havent been checked out by the doctor. There really wasnt any need.

Aside from bruising on my lip there really werent any symptoms.

Now I am really starting to worry. Could something as minor as this cause a brain injury?
