    Hitting a Major League fastball should be physically impossible.


    "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
    --Antoine de Saint-Exupery

    "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold."
    --Yeats

    “True, we [lawyers] build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures - unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.”

    --John W. Davis, founder of Davis Polk & Wardwell

    This also doesn't factor in that you have a round ball hitting a round bat. The contact point for a hr is incredibly small.

    Then consider you can teach a toddler to hit a pitch (albeit not a MLB pitch). Humans are amazing.
