"I saw it coming at me and I remember thinking, 'I don't have a glove to catch this ball,'" Gerharter told the Daily News. "And I think I put my hands up in front of my face. I saw it was coming at me and registered that it was coming at me, and I felt it hit me. It wasn't so much painful as it was shock. So I felt it hit me and I could feel immediately with my tongue there's a hole. And I looked down at my hand and saw there's a tooth in my hand."
"I was full of adrenaline when it first happened, that's why I took the photo," she said. "I started freaking out in the ambulance."
Rushed to the ED - Gerharter hopes that tooth #9 fuses and retakes its rightful place in the front of her mouth.
