As a hitter, there's no feeling in baseball worse than knowing you are at the plate to face a man you know will dominate you with just one pitch.
As you adjust your batting gloves and dig in, you know you're going to flail wildly, but that there's nothing you can do about it. Three pitches later and you're back on the pine, wondering what went wrong and coming to the realization there was not anything you could have done anyway.
