Oh, man. That would scare me for a little while taking a foul ball like that. When I took mine, it kinda deflected off of the side of my facemask where the cage connects to the rest of the helmet. I think that's what saved me from a concussion because the ball didn't hit flush with the facemask. I was fine afterwards but I was a little rattled for a while.
