If you feel sorry for hitters who have to face Cincinnati Reds flamethrower Aroldis Chapman, wait until you see former Japanese baseball player Takeshi Yamasaki try to hit a 186 mph fastball.

Even when you know what's coming, you can't hit something you can't see.

Skip ahead to the 3:29 mark in the video to see how Yamasaki fared against the machine-fired heater.
