Watch An Umpire's View of Fastball Barreling Toward Home Plate
Ever wonder what it's like to see a fastball speeding right toward you? Wonder no more.
Details of the video above are sketchy, but it's trademarked from 2013 and appears to be feature a breaking ball, an up-and-in fastball, a fastball on the outside corner for a strike, an inside fastball and a ball put in play. Now I understand why even the best hitters only succeed in getting a hit about 30 percent of the time.
