Yankees' Aaron Hicks Unloads Record-Breaking 105 MPH Throw for Run-Saving Out

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.
