Chris Capuano almost hits a dragonfly with a pitch (Video)

We’ve seen birds get taken out by pitched balls, but how about gigantic insects? It almost happened yesterday when this dragonfly flew perilously close to a Chris Capuano pitch.

Super-slow-mo reveals how close the dragonfly came to being splattered by the pitch. It was very scary, but the dragonfly escaped unharmed. And the ball escaped un-icked-up by dragonfly entrails.

I wonder what the dragonfly thought when this giant white spheroid came flying out of nowhere. To the dragonfly, the baseball is the size of a meteor. Imagine if you were in a plane and a massive white meteor came plunging out of the sky. You’d be pretty freaked out. You’d think you were in some new crappy TV show based on a Stephen King novel.

I wonder if dragonflies have their own books and crappy TV shows adapted from books. I wonder if there are hidden dragonfly lairs someplace where the dragonflies all hang out and watch TV and stuff. To them, Chris Capuano is like god. He’s this giant god hurling meteors at their people.

Chris Capuano, God of the Dragonflies. I could see it.
