IF YOU CAN DODGE A WRENCH YOU CAN DODGE A BALL
Sage advice given the density, therefore faster velocity, of a wrench. The other difference would be in the amount of curve that can be attained. Balls (see Soccer) are notorious for being able to curve and strike at a target where, initially, it seemed to have had no chance of hitting. But the advice holds as the faster reflexes gained from dodging wrenches would allow one to compensate for this curve.
