"Torii Hunter #48 of the Detroit Tigers is hit by a pitch by pitcher Bud Norris #25 of the Baltimore Orioles (not pictured) in the eighth inning at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on May 12, 2014 in Baltimore, Maryland. The Detroit Tigers won, 4-1."

Shooting batters during baseball games can very difficult.

With the ball being thrown more than 90mph, timing the ball in combination with a swinging bat for the perfect picture is rather difficult. Not to mention, you may be focusing on the players in the infield, or the pitcher, and totally miss a big hit.

It's a gamble where to focus your attention at times.

During the game between the Detroit Tigers and the Baltimore Orioles, I was betting on the wrong players at the wrong times. I missed two diving plays that I'd typically be focused on when I was instead was shooting the batter.

In other words, nothing was going my way. And that's life. Sometimes you're not in the right spot or even focusing on the right place at the right time. It is what it is.

But late in the game, Torii Hunter of the Detroit Tigers was hit by the pitch, and it caused quite the stir, that cleared both benches. No punches were thrown in the end, but it sure did look like that pitch hurt.
