I’m gonna be honest, this seems incredibly dangerous. They say that hitting a round ball with a round bat squarely is the hardest thing to do in sports, but I would argue that hitting a round WHITE ball with a round bat squarely with a WHITE backdrop is borderline impossible.
I need to know who this batter is because he should be in the big leagues right now for even making contact. At 29, I can’t even get a base hit against live pitching without the fog. The batter actually getting a base hit here with these conditions isn’t even the most impressive thing about the play, though. The catcher taking his mask off before getting ready for a throw from the outfield is. Just absolute lunacy. The video cuts off, but there’s a zero percent chance he didn’t get smoked in the face by that throw. The cutoff man doesn’t even have the slightest fucking clue where the ball is, so there’s no chance the catcher does, either.
Both teams are wearing white, too, so how the fuck would the outfielders even know which base to throw to? How do you tell the difference between the third baseman, the third base coach and a runner on third from right field? Impossible. Can you even see the infield from the warning track? So many questions. One thing I’m sure of, though, is that Vince McMahon is about to buy a baseball league and an industrial sized fog machine tomorrow.
