This Day in Baseball History.....

Many of you may remember this.....

Quote:
2001 During an exhibition game against the Giants, Diamondback hurler Randy Johnson's fastball hits and instantly kills a dove flying in front of home plate. The bird appears to explode as the National League Cy Young winner's pitch sends it over catcher Rod Barajas' head

Excuse me! The bird just happened to fly right in front of the fastball! I mean, if you were to walk right in front of Tony Stewart's No. 20 Home Depot Chevrolet Monte Carlo or Impala, wouldn't you be instantly killed?
