Viral Softball Video Inspires Impressive Remake of Trick Shot

Wow.

If I tried to pull this off I might be able to get as far as kicking the bat up to my hand, but that may even be a stretch. Beyond that, though, I'd definitely hurt myself.

If you didn't see this video online (or on SportsCenter) last week, meet Marisa Arriaga. Arriaga is from Cedar Hill, Texas, and plays for the Cedar Hill High School softball team and the Texas Glory Adkins 18U Gold travel team.

She told Women in the World last week that she almost didn't post the video online, but a friend talked her into doing it.

If she hadn't, we may have never seen this recreation video from Katelyn Pavey. Pavey is the captain of the Lanesville High School softball team in Indiana. She was born with phocomelia syndrome, a rare disease that left her with one arm. But that hasn't stopped her from swinging for the fences. In her video, Pavey recreates Arriaga's trick shot with a little flair of her own.

If this level of gamesmanship keeps up, the next insane softball trick shot video should be hitting the Internet any day now.
