Little leaguers warm up with a tornado in the background

Interesting, and maybe not as unusual as you might think. At a wedding reception this weekend, I was talking to someone from McCook, NE, and since I saw the May 17 tornado near there, the subject came up. He said he was at a softball game (not sure if he was a coach, player, spectator, or what). When the sirens went off they apparently could not see the tornado, and he said the game continued because there was not lightning.

Lawnmower guy was different. He was alone and responsible only for himself.
Actually, there was a less widely-reported incident in which a lawnmower guy actually got hit. Happened with the first Trinidad, CO tornado on June 6, 2014. Teenager on a riding mower with loud music and headphones. I first saw the tornado from 40 miles away, so it was pretty visible. Unless you were a teenager with loud music and headphones, LOL. He suffered minor injuries. Got quite a bit of coverage in Colorado but I don't think the national media ever picked it up. But like you said, this guy was also alone and responsible only for himself.
