Hit a homerun with Goldy. Okay. First pitch slider down the middle. Power swing. Perfect/perfect flyball to dead CF. Not a no doubter. Defender runs to the wall. Jumps and makes the play. Mission failed.
And then no more than 2 minutes later, i'm sure you completed it. What was the point of this post?
Yes I did, not even 2 minutes later actually. The point is that moments are so weird that it's actually quite funny. Have you ever hit a slider in real life? I'm gonna go ahead and say no you didn't. Even Tony Gwynn will no doubt homer a slider down the middle on a powerful swing, because of you know.. physics. Goldy against a LHP with that pitch in that location and that swing, and still being able to get robbed.. that's hilarious. I thought most people would understand this and I didn't really have to explain, but I'm glad I could help you a hand here.
Well, you got me there. In my thousands of at bats from high school through college through independent ball through competitive mens leagues which I play to this day.....not once was I able to get a hold of a slider. Still haunts me to this day....thanks for bringing it up.
If that's all true, then you'd know that a hanging slider that you see and hit with a good launch angle will always leave the park. Unless you're 5'4 and weigh 110lbs.
....but if it's in the middle of the plate and in the middle of your pci...that isnt a perfect launch angle for a home run.
My man, I'll say it again. I had a perfect/perfect flyball. Yes? Perfect. Perfect. Flyball.
I thought it just said perfect/perfect the first time I read it, but now it says perfect flyball. If you didn't edit... that's my fault for having bad reading comprehension. I agree that a perfect timing flyball hit on a slider should be a no doubter.
No my initial post doesn't have the edited icon next to it.
