Do you remember the episode of Seinfeld where George runs over the pigeon? He keeps moaning, “We had an agreement?” Basically that bird move when objects like cars are coming at them. It is even weirder when the object is a baseball. Last week a pitcher hit a bird, don’t worry the bird survived. It was during a high school game that pitcher, Ryne Elvers, accidentally hit a bird with a pitch. The bird just flew away as if nothing had happened. Maybe if he had being throwing fast enough to injure or kill the bird it would raise his draft prospects?
The sad thing about this baseball bird violence is not the first case. Pitcher Randy Johnson destroyed a seagull with at 95 mph pitch back in 2008. The pitches always look slower on television but I think this proves they are going pretty fast. I think PETA should be looking into this. When will the baseball bird violence end?
