We’ve heard a million times that hitting a baseball is the hardest thing to do in sports. But forget just sports. Is hitting a baseball actually the hardest thing that anyone can do anywhere in all the galaxy?

Jayson Werth thinks so.

Jayson Werth thinks that if you can hit a baseball, you can do anything. Even complex math.

“Just because you can do something else doesn’t mean you can hit. If you can hit, you can do anything,” Werth argued to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post.

“Because it’s the hardest thing to do. There’s nothing harder. I can bake a cake. I could figure out a way to do algorithms. But a guy that knows how to do algorithms could never hit. It’s literally the hardest thing to do. If you can do the hardest thing, you can do anything else.

Werth adds with a flourish, “There’s nothing harder in the galaxy.”

Obviously Werth has never attempted bowling in the Alpha Centauri system.

The pins are made of pure dilithium, Jayson. Just think about that for a second.
