Jalen Hurts saw his life flash before his eyes while watching Alabama’s softball game against Tennessee on Monday.
The Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback threw out the first pitch before the finale of a three-game series between the teams. Hurts stuck around to watch the game, hanging out down by the left field line past the Tide’s dugout. At one point a foul ball was ripped down the line and nearly nailed him:
Nick Saban got on Hurts for leaving the pocket under pressure, but that was a good time for him to avoid the contact.
It’s been a busy few days Hurts. He played in Alabama’s spring game on Saturday, threw out the first pitch before an Alabama baseball game last week, and then he threw out the first pitch on Monday.
