Player Hits Ball Back Into Pitching Machine, Which Spits It Right Back Out at Him
Ever seen a pitching machine fight back?
Matt Joyce, an outfielder for the Tampa Bay Rays, was taking batting practice before Thursday's game, something he does before every game. Ho hum, regular routine stuff so far, right?
NOPE. Because Joyce made contact on one particular swing and sent the ball straight up, where it bounced off the roof of the batting cage. It then deflected back down directly into the pitching machine that had just launched the ball in the first place. The machine then re-launched the same ball right away, momentarily scaring the crap out of Joyce.
You may never see this happen again, so be sure to watch it 10 or 12 times.
