A good portion of New Yorkers join softball leagues for the social aspect alone, which leaves many teams stockpiled with players who are ridiculously awful.

Such is the case of the man in this video, Michael Braun, who is part of the mighty JSM Stallions. The team played its first game recently in downtown Manhattan at the Baruch Playground and, according to the emailer who sent us this video, this was Michael's first time picking up a bat. Amazingly, Michael made contact the first time he was at the plate without severely injuring himself or anyone else. Unfortunately, that's where his success ended.

Softball Failures Of America should please send us videos or stories of a comparable quality throughout the year. But, for the love of Christ, be safe out there.
