During batting practice Thursday, the Tampa Bay Rays' Matt Joyce managed to launch a ball directly back into the pitching machine. It fired it back out quickly before he could realize what had happened. So sadly, no, he didn't manage to hit it back into the machine, prompting some kind of perpetual back-and-forth pitching-and-hitting loop. But we still suspect that some kind of sorcery was happening here and someone should probably look into it.
