Was pretty badass... It can`t be real though... baseball pitched @ 90 mph * batters swing = visible on camera???? I dunno... I`m pretty drunk but I have many a doubt.

"(and was the voice was cut out of the scene or was not caught by the mic) or it is fake somehow."

Fake Somehow? Izaq, allow me to introduce you to a simple program called Milkshape, then work your way up to 3DS Max.....Its so incredibly easy to do this that the guy making the animation parts of this scene probably make less than a McDonalds manager

This is indeed fake. It`s in fact part of a slew of films that are intended to be used for Gatorade commercials. Some of these videos have "leaked" onto the net recently. Here is another one.

Ball Girl Catches Fly Ball

The only question is, are these video`s truly leaked, or were they intentionally released as part of a clever marketing ploy?

Another thing. You can hear people cheer. But neither the batter nor the pitcher seems to care where the ball went. Even if there are non-playing personel in the direction where the ball went. If baseball players are so lightning fast, why didn`t the two other players realize in which direction the ball was going?

I looks like he moves his arm before his head is turned. So either someone called out to him (and was the voice was cut out of the scene or was not caught by the mic) or it is fake somehow.

This is the exact same as the fantasy football videos some pros did a while back. Really cool, but really fake.

it`s fake because Eva Longoria is NOT a guy...

...oh wait...nevermind...

anyway, it has to be real because it`s on the internets.

I`m surprised nobody called out that this video might be the victim of some trickery.

FAKE!

As usual I am the only person on the entire internet able to spot a fake, without even looking at the comments to see if anyone else made the same realizaton I did....and even if I did check the comments, mine is the most important and therefore makes the claim FACT, because I am the smartest most important person on the internet, and my fake spotting abilities are unsurpassable.

I don`t know if anyone else said it, but I think this is fake. Could we get one more person to say it`s fake. I`m just not sure we have enough of these informative geniuses around to spread the message of just how fake this is.

Not the worst fake I`ve ever seen, but certainly not the best.

Fake. I played ball for many years. it`s possible to catch a line drive off the bat with bare hands. However it took way too long to travel 90 feet. The impact on his hand and arm from the speed of the ball would have buckled. Also like any good fielder they are instinctively trained to use both hands when fielding. Especially at that level of pro.

Yeah, it is fake, Rick S. I also submitted this before I found it is part of an ad campaign. I knew several people would submit this because it is a great little clip. When I first saw it I was expecting a clip about Eva Longoria. A clip of Eva Longoria saving a reporter would have been better but this is good too.

I don`t see anything that would indicate a fake here. I`ve read the comments, and just don`t see what you`re seeing. (The line drive down to third is the pitch coming in, not the hit going out, imo.)

In the slo mo version @ 11 seconds you can see the ball going in line drive or grounder toward third base.

HEY, ADMINS! Don`t care posts, but how about a BACK & NEXT button in the posted comments section so you don`t have to meander through the post you just watched. Just asking, still love IAB. Thanks.

There is 4 mistakes. Ball vanishes when leaving bat and when entering hand. The sounds of it hitting his hand sounds like a padded glove and not skin n bone. Lastly he doesn`t throw it away, at the arc of the toss you can clearly see it in his hand. Still well done though, took me a bit to catch on.

I kept wondering when Eva Longoria was going to come out and then I saw the jersey. F*cking Baseball.

@ MrOrange: HEY! Great post man. Is your real job a postman cause that was like some professional sh*t right there. Keep up the good work, bud.

@MrOrange & @Buiadh: Also sometimes a suggestion gets selected, but not put up.
I`ve also gotten `this has been suggested` for one that... I suggested!

Just keep suggesting stuff! You`ll be making big money soon! We DO get paid for suggesting stuff, right @fancylad?

"Not Fair I-A-B Mods, i sugested this link about a week ago, what the deal?"

I did that with a link a while back, it was posted the next day using someone elses submission (one of the mods suggested it I think), I then got an email telling me not to submit repeated content a few days afterwards. Le sigh!

Oh shoot...now they are saying it`s a commercial for Gillette. See the way the fence frames the reporter and Evan IS a spokesman for Gillette. I knew it was to good to be true! Darn!

Besides that I once caught a baseball like that. Well, not like that, but I`m just saying: that would break your hand. Certainly broozed mine.
