What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light?

Inquiring minds want to know! :lol:

And the final note: A careful reading of official Major League Baseball Rule 6.08(b) suggests that in this situation, the batter would be considered "hit by pitch", and would be eligible to advance to first base.

That is hilarious, Juan!

Why bother? He'll just create a fake website to make it look like an accidental injestion.... or he'll plead the FedEx defense.
