I always wanted to know what it was like to step into the batters box and face an 80 MPH fastball from Tim Wakefield. Now I do thanks to the batting cages at Hilltop Fun Center.

I made contact with 3 pitches, and hit only one fair. I'd say I've forgotten how to play baseball.

Can you imagine trying to hit a 90 MPH fastball?!? Only knuckleballers throw fastballs less than 90.
