    It’s the 180 panoramic camera that makes the pitch look fast smh

        i get scared when the ball gets hit my way in gym class. one kid at my school is ranked 17 in the nation and the amount of speed that the ball comes at you is fucking freaky. i play outfield because i’m scared to get hit in the face.

          I'm doing a baseball film and need permission to use some of this video. Could I get an email address to contact?

                  I’ll tell you exactly what would happen. A fastball would come in over the plate but like an inch inside and I’d go “WHOA...NAW, IM GOOD....” and walk away.

                    Yeah. Just walk up to him and slap him in the taint. Shit. I could do that anywhere from MLB to Tee-ball but the latter might get me thrown in jail.. or something else.

                              This reminds my of my younger days ! ..Standing at the plate, realizing a fastball had gone by me JUST as the catcher throws it back.

                                            unbelievable. if u blink as soon as he releases the ball the next thing u see when u open ur eyes is the catcher catching the ball. amazing speed.

                                              I'll go a step further and SAY that hitting a major league pitcher is out of the question for the VAST majority of humans on this planet

                                                One of my buddies used to throw an 80 something an hour fastball He never played organized baseball in his life but for the hell of it sometimes we would try to hit his pitch.When he pitched it was terrifying it was so effing fast you can hear the pitch coming in whizzing It was scary as hell didn’t want to get hit by the pitch

                                                    Unless the "cyclones" are a new team, this isn't major league

                                                      I dunno. For some people this is impossible. I’m 34 and can still catch up to a nineties fb. It’s not like you gotta swing hard. Time a fast ball right and have a good swing with very little movement. One thing I’ll say is that trying to hit at a high level is very tiring. Not to mention when you’re connecting.

                                                        If it's so hard to Track the ball to hit, how is it that the catcher Is so good?

                                                          too slow... i can hit home run off any ball he pitch

                                                                        • josh morgan

                                                                            • cherbutler85

                                                                              This clip is deceptive. Kinda looks easy here. But the truth is, that ball arrives not as a blur, but rather a hint of a blur. And there is nothing more frightening then being anywhere near the recieving end of an object that is that small moving that fast. I compare it to trying to catch a bullet being shot out of a gun (I assume). You literally have no time to move your body, other then your hand a foot or so.
                                                                              While catching the ball your only thought is "Please don't kill me!"
                                                                              A friend of mine once was a shortstop in the Twins minor league system. Cannon for an arm. Said he was once clocked at 95mph. I would occasional play catch with him at a distance equivalent to the distance from 2nd base to home. I'm just glad he had incredible accuracy.
                                                                              Thrilling but insanely scary to catch.

                                                                                          Haven't swung a baseball bat in 15 years, but just went to some batting cages today for fun. I am athletic enough I suppose, and sure, no one could ever expect to just pick up a bat and be good. But holy hell, I could barely hit the 50 and 60 mph speeds. I stepped up to the 80 mph and it's incredible how the ball appears in front of the machine, then is by you before you have a chance to think, much less time a swing, and I don't have to worry balls vs strikes, or where in the zone it's going to be. And 80mph is a slow change-up in MLB. A lot of respect for what a hitter does.

                                                                                          PS I got extremely lucky and made really good contact on one 80mph pitch. I fouled 2 or 3 other off to the side. The rest I whiffed on big time XD
