Rajai Davis kicks himself in the head with hat, makes catch

Rajai Davis made a pretty routine catch against the Yankees in the eighth inning of the Blue Jays loss on Thursday. Well, it was mostly routine, if not for the fact that his hat fell off, he kicked it, hit himself in the head with it, and caught the baseball anyway.

Seeing it in real-time is fine and all, but it doesn't paint the picture you need. Zoom and enhance!

Does he not even flinch when the hat flies up in front of his face? I don't think he even flinches. There's only one way to find out, and that's with a slow-motion, kicking-yourself-in-the-head-with-your-hat GIF:

Is he not aware that it's happening? Is he just that zoned in on the ball? About the only thing that could have improved this is if his hat had caught the ball, and then he caught his own hat. What's the ruling on that one, blue?
