I'm sure this will be an Olympic event within the next few decades.

Unedited video of someone doing these same tricks two or more times in a row would be impressive. This is not. Anyone can do these shots with enough tries.

Yea, I'll give them some balls to handle.

Setting up lots of things in a room that could be targets and swinging a thousand times until something happens is not a sport.

Obviously these guys took some time to do these, as evidenced by the stray balls all over the place, but it's still impressive. It would take me years to hit all of these shots, and I presume it took nowhere near that long for these guys.

Sin_City_Superhero: Check out Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons from earlier this season.


That video is in the linked article, unless they added it after you linked it.

Olympic event =/= sport. Anything with "gymnastic" in the title, for example.

Boxing sits squarely on the fence:  Knock your opponent out, and you have emerged victorious in a sport.  Let him stay standing till the end of the last round, and you are reduced to prayer that your opponent, not you, is Miss Congeniality.

Most of these are things that, given enough tries, most of us could eventually get right.

The ones that really impressed me were the ones where they stood in front of the ricochet net because I'd hit myself in the face and give up long before I got the trick right.

More like Tee ball tricks, amiright?

Take #91 hitting a ball off a tee into a garbage can....

Sport: requires a ball or puck and some type of physical exertion.

Activity: No ball or puck, you can smoke while participating in the activity. ie: golf, bowling, softball
