Pitcher Somehow Throws a Pitch Into the Umpire’s Ball Bag (VIDEO)

Baseball Is Fun

A short one, but a good one:

The odds of what just happened seem extremely low – the pitch is in the dirt, and then seems to go off the catcher’s arm and umpire’s body, spinning straight up in the air, and coming down perfectly into the umpire’s ball bag.

With the pitch hitting the dirt, there’s a good chance it would have eventually wound up back in that umpire’s bag anyway. Everyone involved just skipped the middle man (or middle boy – the ball boy). It’s a new efficiency!
