Fowl Ball! Pitcher Hits Bird Mid-Flight

3 May

At a high school game in Springfield’s Sacred Heart-Griffin High School in Illinois,pitcher Ryne Elvers hurls a ball at the batter just as a bird makes a fly by.Quite how the bird manages to carry on flying after the amount of feathers it lost during the contact is a mystery, let alone how it survived.The last time something like this happened was back in March 24, 2001, when Randy Johnson struck a bird at 95mph killing it outright. The ball was deemed a no-pitch.
