Hitting a Pitch Off A Big League Pitcher...Or At Least Trying To

Posted June 28th, 2014 @ 7:28am

Like a lot of boys growing up in Northern Virginia, I played me some T-ball. Heck, I was even an all star for the Franconia Twins of the Pioneer T-Ball League when we played our games at Lee District Park. The next step was C-Ball where a machine pitched. That is about the time I stopped playing any form of baseball. There were two major reasons...I was afraid of getting hit by a pitch and the other being that I wasn't all that good with hitting the ball off of a T.

I harnessed my talents elsewhere...I was on the track team. I ran a 4.6 40 yard dash and excelled there but my love for baseball never waned. I love the Baltimore Orioles and going to the ballpark whenever I get a chance.

The video below is both my dream and nightmare. Actors Paul Rudd, Johnny Knoxville, Jason Sudeikis and Rob Koechner had the chance to take some pitches from Jeremy Guthrie, pitcher for the Kansas City Royals. Jeremy was not holding back and was throwing some decent heat. Some of them made contact...but not much. Watch the video below...
