WATCH: Jalen Hurts nearly gets taken out by foul ball at Alabama softball game
Alabama QB Jalen Hurts is used to dodging defenders on his way to the end zone, but on Monday, he had to do a different kind of dodging.
Hurts attended Alabama’s softball game against Tennessee, and in the bottom of the fourth inning, an Alabama hitter sent a screaming foul ball down the left field line.
As you can see in the GIF below, the ball nearly took Hurts out, but he was able to scramble out of the way at the last second:

Hurts is used to keeping his head on a swivel, so this was a funny moment instead of one that could have been a whole lot worse.
Maybe the Alabama softball team was just making it clear they want Tua Tagovailoa to start this fall.
