Utah High School Pitcher Saves Face With Amazing Catch (Video)
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.

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.
