Jordan Cobabe Face-Saving Catch

Jordan Cobabe, high school baseball pitcher in Utah, made a catch during a recent game that didn’t just help his team win, but might have even saved his life.

The line drive in question might have obliterated Cobabe’s face if he hadn’t reacted as swiftly as he did, with less than a second to do so. It’s pretty amazing stuff, and it wasn’t lost on Cobabe, who tweeted after his team’s 4-2 victory: “So um..it’s safe to say that I’m thankful to be alive right now!”

You can check out the video for yourself below. At full speed, it almost looks like Cobabe DOES get hit in the face, but slow motion tells the story a little better.
