Little girl almost gets hit by Stephen Strasburg warmup pitch (GIF)

Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg was trying to warm up when, out of nowhere, a small girl went streaking across the grass right in front of the mound, forcing Strasburg to stop cold in the middle of delivering a pitch.

Don’t worry, the Little Girl Revolt spoken of in the ancient texts is not upon us. Plagues of little girls are not preparing to take over the world. This little girl had permission to be on the field as part of a pre-game autograph promotion but she apparently wasn’t listening when the grown ups gave instructions about not running right in front of the mound.

Thankfully Strasburg has great situational awareness, otherwise that little girl might’ve gotten hit right in the cheek by a major league warmup pitch.
