As much as I love baseball, I just hate spring training baseball. It's just too long and it involves too many players no one has heard of.

But then again, fun things happen during spring training.

Like in 2001, flame throwing pitcher Randy Johnson hit a bird with a 99 mph fastball.

Fast forward to yesterday at a spring training game between the Atlanta Braves and the Detroit Tigers in Kissimmee, Florida.

Tigers rookie catcher James McCann was at-bat just doing his thang when he hit a foul ball. The ball didn't quite make a looping path to the stands. There was something in its way.

What was it? A bird? A plane? Superman?

No, it was a bird again.


Let's hope someone immediately went cook a pot of rice.
