Default deflects off his mitt

Runner on first, hard hit ground ball to pitcher, deflects off his mitt, then strikes base ump.
Dead ball or play on?

In this situation, would you, as BU, give a safe sign after you were hit, or just let the play go on with no signal.

I see it being similar to a collision where there's no OBS or INT -- give the safe sign with "that's nothing" to show you saw it but didn't judge any infraction.

Yes. And if I was hit by a deflected ball in flight which was subsequently caught, I would give the safe sign and a "no catch" verbal. I have dreams about that one. I will nail it if it ever happens.
