Well, as soon as you do, be sure to post a video for us.
They won the World Baseball Classic that included an all-star team from the U.S. and all the baseball loving Latin American countries. So, they`re pretty good.
Let see him do it with a curveball.
they must be deaf then.
BTW, a pitching machine makes enough noise that you can predict 1-2 sec. in advance exactly when the ball is coming, so he can start drawing the sword before the ball is released. This also could have been 1 of 20 takes.
Still, the previous post with this guy was more impressive.
...Ima get pwned by grammar Nazis nao. o.o
its a japanese thing where they have their swords still in the sheathes, when you pull it out like that, it scrapes against the inside and makes it so that u can draw the sword faster. Thankyou Rurouni Kenshin
But why isn`t anyone pointing out the obvious? If the Japanese can do THIS, why do they suck at baseball?
btw what is it with everyone else handing out internets? especially when they arent really important enough to be giving out that kinda prize
The motion of drawing it from a sheath is no more time consuming than bringing the bat down from a shoulder.
There are two parts that could be considered impressive in this stunt. First, being able to draw the sword and make contact with the 93 mile an hour ball. Assuming that the pitching machine is regulation distance from the batter, I find this to be no more impressive than a baseball player hitting a fast ball. It is impressive, as not everyone can hit a 93 mile an hour target, but I don`t find it super impressive.
Second, the ball being sliced by a samurai sword. Given that samurai swords are designed to cut off peoples heads, among other things, I don`t find slicing a baseball in half any more impressive than any other stunt with a samurai sword. Given, however, that I can`t use a samurai sword to slice off anything, I`ll say this is impressive, but no more impressive than norm
