This is the set of pictures of our visitor DannyThomson, who put the link in the comments and shortly wrote his story. Thanks a lot Danny for letting us publish your pictures and for your explanations :)
Here’s his complete story about the accident.

Oct 10, 2008. Day 1
I was in the batting cage with my brother, I pitched him the ball and I wasnt fully behind the pitching net, just being lasy. The ball was hit right back up the middle, hit me around 100mph right on the left cheek. It shattered everything, my bone punctured through my skin and was squirting blood causing more blood than just out of my nose and mouth.

After surgey
the 5 holes under my eye are where the screws are at, and you can see the wire holding my eye together, also all the plates you cant see, since there all covering the bone, and this scan only does the bone

Year Later, November 2009

I’m fully healed and the plates are dissolving, there will only be the screw itself left after a few years.
I've had many people touch and feel the screws and wire, but to this day you can’t even tell what happened.

You're welcome izismile it was a hard time during those months. I'm glad to be back to sports and living life, I didn't do much except watch movies and eat ice cream and very soft foods for a few months. My girlfriend still loves me even though I have half of a metal face haha

Dan HeilbrunSome ththguos from Smart Real Estate News & Commentary by Chris McLaughlin.The volume of distressed mortgages is up 19.3% from a year ago. The amount of REO in the US as of March reached its highest levels since 2008. Since the beginning of 2008, when LPS measured more than 675,000 REO, the volume has increased 62.2% to more than 1.09m properties. The amount of delinquencies in March decreased 10.3% from February but remains 15.7% higher than levels measured a year ago. The foreclosure rate in March also dropped 3.27% from the month before but increased 32.9% from last year.
