That is why hitting a major league fastball is the hardest thing to do in any sport. Every single pitch is always well within your reach. You know when it is coming. You know generally where it is going to be. All you have to do is make clean contact -- if you can make any contact at all, that is.

But in reality, 18 out of 20 times (or worse), you are going completely whiff the ball. Complete air. And the two times you make contact, you are going to shank it straight into the ground or pop it straight up or back.

If a baseball pitcher was allowed to serve a pitch to as wide of an area as a tennis service box, a batter would *never* get a single hit. Not one.

The two cannot be compared.
