Now will always be : Safer. Amazes me how many people wait and never wake up. If i were you now would be the safe thing to do. Please.

Agree with my colleagues, as it is worthwhile to confirm stability. A concussion results in avoiding competitive sports for 4-6 weeks, and since you were hit by a ball, this may well be a pertainent issue.
