Video: Watch Matt Joyce’s batting practice trick shot

Jun 20, 2014, 9:14 AM EDT

Can’t say I’ve ever seen this one. The Rays’ Matt Joyce hit a BP pitch back into the pitching machine which then promptly delivered it back to him:

If he could do that on command he could take the act on the road. Or, at the very least, put BP pitchers out of business.

      Go to MLB videos, I’m sure they have that.

      That’s how I feel about the entire Rays season.

      Nice work on the quick fix Craig. Not your fault that MLB still can’t get embedded videos right in 2014.

      This too is also how I feel about the entire Rays season.

    Everytime I’ve ever gone to a batting cage, I’ve specifically tried to do this. I have yet to be successful although I have gotten close a few times…

      Nearly every time I go, I hit the ball straight straight back into the muzzle of the pitching machine. The first time I was quite impressed with myself, but I do it with such regularity that now I just worry for the health of future opposing pitchers.
