No not Curling… Catch a football and score a touchdown? Kick a soccer ball downfield for a goal? Get the puck past the blueline or bang a 3 pointer in B-Ball? Nope the hardest thing to do in sports is hit a baseball. The physics are extreme. The velocity of the average fastball in the Major Leagues is more than 90 miles per hour. When the ball whizzes in at that speed,
the hitter has about 150 milliseconds to decide whether they want to swing. That’s literally the blink of an eye.
