TMSIDK: The Hardest Thing To Do In Sports


They’ say that one of the hardest things to do in sports is to hit a baseball.  In the major leagues, pitchers can change speeds ranging typically from the low 80’s to high 90’s.  On top of that, they can put all different kinds of spin on the ball to have it move.  If you are lucky enough to get your bat on the ball, you then have to hit it in areas that 9 defenders can’t get to it.

So what may even be harder than that?  Hitting a wiffle ball.  If you don’t believe me, watch this video.

The wiffle ball was invented in 1953 and has been fooling kids and adults alike ever since. This article explains why the wiffle ball does what it does. It’s all about science. Forces to be exact.

It may not help you hit it but at least you’ll feel smarter as you swing and miss.  Of course, the smarter thing is to master throwing it, instead of hitting it!
