I cannot stop laughing! The batter here was given a simple task: make contact with the ball as the runners on second and third would be off on the play. It became much more difficult than anticipated.
The catcher and pitcher saw what was happening and called for a pitch out. Willing to complete the task no matter what it took, the batter flew a few feet with his bat extended hoping to make contact. The bad news? He missed. The good news? If I'm ever having a bad day, this GIF will cheer me right up.
