Watch: Samurai at batting cage slices 100-mph fastball in half

BY Brett Smiley • October 14, 2015

Japanese Iaido master Isao Machii literally took a cut at a batting cage recently, demonstrating some impressive hand-eye-sword coordination against a 100-mph (161 km) fastball.

Machii holds a few Guinness World Records, incuding one for the fastest time to complete 1,000 cuts of rolled straw mats.

Some pretty impressive work in the video (above) by Machii, who at the very least might make a solid bunting specialist in baseball.
