Being a hitter in Major League Baseball is hard enough when you have to face one pitcher, but imagine how difficult it would be if you had to face two pitchers at once?
OK, that’s not something that will ever come close to happening, but thanks to the great Pitching Ninja on X, which used to be known as a thing called Twitter, we can see what it looks like when two pitchers fire 100-mph fastballs at the same time.
This mashup video below of Miami’s Eury Pérez and Atlanta’s Spencer Strider doing just that is so mesmerizing.
Check this out:

Pretty wild, right?
This is also interesting:
Spencer Strider releases his average fastball closer to the plate than Eury Pérez. 😮 https://t.co/A9zOUriVif

Maybe I don't know this for sure but doesn't this imply that in a decade all pitchers will be 6'8" and throwing 115? https://t.co/WMOojesHRd

to increase interest in baseball they should have 2 pitchers and 2 batters simultaneously during extra innings
