Your move, Aroldis Chapman

XKCD examines what would happen if a baseball were pitched at 90-percent of the speed of light. Turns out it would be pretty hard to hit, in part because it would disintegrate before it reached the plate, and in part because the batter and everyone in the stadium would die. Worth a read.
