Randy Johnson versus a bird, who wins? When it comes to all time major league fastballs, Randy Johnson ranks near the very top. He was a flamethrower, and his menacing 6-foot-10 height with his quick release made him a very intimidating pitcher. Let’s not forget the mullet was also very intimidating. No one knows the power of a Randy Johnson fastball than a bird who happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Today marks the 20th anniversary of Randy plunking a bird.

People with YEARS of practice couldn't make contact with a Randy Johnson fastball. This bird did it first try. Don't let people tell you what you can and can't do. Spread your wings and fly people. https://t.co/oScfcwZW4L

Randy is just lucky he didn’t have to deal with the cancel culture that might have been coming for him for killing a bird.
What a great memory!
