“Blindfolded baseball catcher vs. 2 hockey players” says the title of this video. A guy in jeans and a Melbourne Aces sweatshirt walks in front of a goal, pulls a blindfold over his eyes and faces a bunch of shots from two field hockey players. He catches all the balls. That’s what happens. It’s very obviously fake, but what is the point here? Will fans attend the next Melbourne Aces game and be disappointed when the catcher wears a mask and pads and just kid of sits there catching balls being thrown to him while he is not wearing a blindfold? What’s your endgame, Melbourne Aces? The only explanation I can come up with is that this is an anti-field hockey video.
“But it’s an amateur sport, we’re just here for fun. It’s not really that serious. So I guess any ball should be OK.”
