Is it possible?

SDS

If you hit a ball tailing down the line at 105, is it even possible to catch that? This game is 18 in some aspects it seems

SDS

Yes, it is absolutely possible

Yes, it is absolutely possible

With top spin? and it’s going away from the outfielder?

Yep, it's still absolutely physically possible

SDS

Depends on the speed of the outfielder, jump they get, intital defensive shift and angle they're approaching at. You're question is kind of vague. Remember, the hardest ball hit in 2018 was a double play.

SDS

just go watch gold glove highlights. Every ball you think is impossible to get to those guys will get to. Just like how Vlad will send any pitch you think is unhittable into the next state

SDS

Also remember those are exit velo's. Not the speed the ball is traveling when passing a first baseman or 3rd baseman. And they routinely catch very fast pitches and throws all the time.

Matt Chapman did it last night.

Almost anything is possible, I think you meant "is it probable?"

Anything is possible you’re right maybe I should’ve worded it better. But is someone gonna actually make a play on it without it being as difficult as a can of corn?

In this game, I find fielders have more trouble with slow rollers than 110mph lasers right at their heads 😁

‘Did you catch that?’
‘Yeah I did’
