Little League Pitcher Saved by His Cap [VIDEO]


In a Friday game at the Little League World Series, Huntington Beach, California pitcher Braydon Salzman was almost smacked in the forehead with a line-drive ball. It would’ve surely been a scary event (just ask this minor leaguer) — were it not for the brim of his ball cap.

While the impact did knock Salzman to the ground, slow-motion replay shows his cap’s bill took the brunt of the impact, leaving a noticeable dent.

And after regaining his bearings and asking for the license plate of the truck that hit him, Salzman returned to the game — which his team won, 11-0.

Take a look at the close call below:
