Jeff Samardzija's stuff is pretty nasty.

But is he so hard to hit that he can make a professional baseball player looks like a Little Leaguer at the plate? Because that's exactly what Billy Hamilton looked like to lead of Friday's game at Wrigley Field.

Hamilton, the Reds centerfielder and noted fastest player in the game, flailed at strike three from Samardzija in a hilarious, embarrassing way (h/t Eye on Baseball for the GIF):

 

We're in disbelief at Hamilton's attempt. Good try, I guess?

Wow.
