I promise that nobody has ever pulled a pitch over 100 mph more than 10 feet foul.


Saw Julio Franco pull a several 100mph fastballs, deep and foul in the same at bat just a few days ago.


Sorry to bust your bubble, but did he hit them 50 FEET FOUL, AND ABOUT 450 LONG? I dont think so.


Most guys in the majors have a quick enough bat to pull a 100+ fastball if thats all the pitchers got. For the 450 feet when you hit something that fast its going to go a ways...

sura had the chance for his third straight triple double and the hawks were up big. With 3 seconds in the game, he intentionally missed his own shot and got the rebound in order to give him 10 rebounds, giving him the triple double. The NBA took it away later, saying he missed the shot intentionally and didnt count the rebound. So he is pretty selfish.

After he hit it did they have an on field ceremony in praise of Barry? I really can't believe anyone here would actually make a post about a freakin foul ball. :-t

i agree completely. The Barry Bonds hype is too much. I mean come on, it was a foul ball!!
