Sports, although inherently competitive, are occasionally sprinkled with no-win scenarios.
Trying to outrun the fastest outfield throw ever recorded in baseball is one of them.
The Oakland Athletics' Danny Valencia probably could have never imagined that, following a Yonder Alonso fly to left field, he'd be pursued in his sprint from third base to home by a 105.5 mph ball.
But reality became very clear when Yankees left fielder Aaron Hicks unloaded the blazing throw with pitching-caliber speed, and a likely winded Valencia was tagged out.
Life comes at you fast. Real fast.
