IPAD baseball pitch faceSCROLL DOWN FOR THE VIDEO!

Check out this close call! I don’t know if this iPad saved this guy’s life, but it sure saved his face.

Tom was proudly photographing a women’s softball tournament at the University of Iowa, when a ball came his way. The only thing keeping him from getting clocked in the face was his iPad.

All that, and he didn’t even leave his seat!
