The Perth Scorchers took on the Melbourne Stars in something called the Big Bash League yesterday, but more interestingly, a Scorchers batter nailed a seagull with a hit. It wasn't quite Randy Johnson demolishing a dove with a fastball—the damn thing didn't explode—but I'm sure it didn't feel good to the poor seagull. Things were touch-and-go for a minute before the seagull hopped around and indicated it was okay, and then on the very next play it almost got itself hit again.

C'mon seagull, no need to be a hero.
