Did you see the game over the weekend at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania?  A pitcher for a California team seemingly took a line drive shot right off his face.  That's the way it looked until slow motion replay showed the ball actually hit and crushed the brim of his cap saving him from serious injury.

After dusting himself off, he stayed in the game. 

A local angle to the story - he was wearing a cap made by New Era Cap Company  based in Buffalo.
