Hi, I'm new here. I thought this might be fun to discuss.


I need help on this one. We've got to consider the speed of the ball, which should be on record somewhere, or we can estimate it based on Randy's fastball speed. The speed of the bird can be guessed at via watching the video and comparing it with the known speed of the ball.

Then we have the number of birds in the stadium, how often (given the stadium volumn and number of birds) a bird is likely to cross through that specific area. And many other factors I'm sure I'm not thinking about.

I want to know just how rare a moment this was caught on tape. I suspect it is extrodinarily rare, like cosmicly rare.
