Kid drills softball into fan’s iPad

World of Sport

There's something about people taking iPads to sporting events that makes World of Sport irrationally annoyed.

Perhaps it's the way they blight centuries of tradition with a gleaming slab of technology; or maybe it's the modern obsession with recording events on camera instead of just watching and enjoying them.

So it was with some delight that we watched this incident from a kids' softball game.

The batter fouls off a pitch and manages to plant the ball square into a spectator's iPad.

However, it seems Apple had the last laugh - the man's expensively-acquired piece of kit survived the impact apparently unscathed.
