For all of the times that they're scared of a bolt of lightning or giant spider (I continue to be frightened of both, particularly if they appear at the same time), young children have an innocence that allows them to ignore some pretty scary situations: 

During Sunday's Giants-Nationals game, a young fan tempted fate by running in between home plate and the pitcher's mound ... while Stephen Strasburg was warming up.

You can see Dad (in the foreground) feeling some upsetting feelings.
