If you feel sorry for hitters who have to face Cincinnati Reds flamethrower Aroldis Chapman, wait until you see former Japanese baseball player Takeshi Yamasaki try to hit a 186 mph fastball.

A hitter has to have unreal bat speed in order to hit something that fast.

Even when you know what's coming, you can't hit something you can't see.

Skip ahead to the 3:29 mark in the video to see how Yamasaki fared against the machine-fired heater.
