The ball hits him, but he"s still out! I didn"t know this was even possible, but here it is!

He knew the ball was going to hit him. He was just trying to defend himself.

Yeah, that`s the ticket!

Before I seen this, I thought perhaps the ball had hit the bat and then him, but this was just embarrassing.

I`ve seen that a few times, he swung before it hit him so it`s a strike and just to rub in the fact that you struck out the ball hits you, hahaha!

@fancythat: Well DUH! I just don`t recall seeing it before. And it`s funny! Poor Melky...

@freddyferret: I agree, but I`d never thought of it before.
Similar to trying to bunt, and getting hit while outside of the batters box, it`s a strike! Or you`re out, I forget...

Go Blue Jays Go! World Series here we come!!!

It`s possible because he swung on it and missed, and it was before it hit him. A strike is a strike.

You didn`t know this was possible? This happens more often than perfect games. Ever hear of those?
