Terrified Asexual Forcemeat: I'm always impressed by feats of training and discipline, but I was too embarrassed by the other nine people to watch the whole thing.
1nsanilicious: Another something fake put on the Internet.
Summoner101: He has nothing on Randy Johnson
Incorrigible Astronaut: Is this really THAT impressive? He's not that far away from anything that they toss, and it's all pretty heavy/slow-moving stuff. The only part that screamed fake to me was when the ball went through the pizza box.

The only part that screamed fake to me was when the ball went through the pizza box.It would be impressive if it were real. Hitting a moving object like that is much different than hitting a stationary target. And you're supposed to believe he hit them all on the first try.
Big Ramifications: Animated gif of pitcher annihilating something in mid-air during a game-
Notabunny: Big Ramifications: Animated gif of pitcher annihilating something in mid-air during a game-I was at a game where Candy Maldonado beaned a bird. Whenever he'd be up to bat after that, the crowd would do bird calls.
NBSV: I'd call fake just because he isn't exactly winding up and really throwing hard. Granted he's likely throwing harder than I can, I doubt it's enough to punch a hole through a pizza box and pizza like that.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: I would like to destroy Kari mid-air with my slowball
Kurmudgeon: Never did figure out what was the first thing they threw in the air..../oh well
Britney Spear's Speculum: If you stick around, you can watch him eliminate a tiger
timujin: Soda bottle, at least that's what they call for in the first couple of seconds.
steveGswine: What I took away from this is that Kari always has a piñata with her.
basemetal: I think Kari had the hots for him......
Loomy: I'd like to see a legit re-enactment of these [fake] stunts. Just do it on a regulation diamond, w/ a mound, and have the watermelon/pizza/box/whatever be set up where the mitt usually is, just to see if it's actually possible to penetrate those items. You'd likely have to brace them, since a fastball isn't a bullet, but I'd believe a 100 mph baseball could do some penetrative damage. Probably won't be able to get a release for a commodity like Cain to throw full-heat in a non-game situation, but a sup'd up pitching machine could work.
