Cricket (indoor to be precise). Bat-pad is the fielding spot right next to the batter the nutters (think Boonie) field at, and the guy went to crack the ball at me but poorly timed it and it came of the toe (base) of the bat. He was in the motions of making a run for it, and I was already in the air to stop the ball and run him out (or hit him with it full pelt at least). But I muffed it good and proper :). Got 5 wickets in my previous over so thought I was up for a good night until I hit the deck wrong.
Either way, you can go flat out on the track or field at bat pad without a box and helmet (I've now got injuries from both) - both get a similar pucker going and you know your alive!
