The base ball had a virus on it.
It was thrown by the pitcher.
The batter saw it as it was cumming and swung at it using a well rounded piece of wood.
He didn’t have a gun to use as protection as guns were outlawed, meaning only outlaws have them, so he used what defense he could find and he missed.
The catcher, well, he catched it.
He then threw it elsewhere.
Our blood cells play ball too.
