He's got a great stroke but the ball was fouled off!
Samurai sword master Isao Machii performed a stunt where he used his weapon to slice a 100 MPH fastball in half.
Machii stood 30 feet in front of a pitching machine and waited for the ball. When it was launched, Machii diced the ball with a quickness. He removed the sword from its sheath and attacked.
