Hey, did you know that getting hit by a baseball hurts? You did? Well, then, you’re one step ahead of this journalist.

That’s some, ahem, hard-hitting journalism, if the team from 'Jackass' was behind it.

We can’t wait to check out next week’s investigative piece: every time a runner crosses home plate, does it really only count as one run?
