No dragonflies were injured in the making of this article.
The YES Network's "YES-MO" is a slow motion camera that is often used for replays and analysis; however this particular shot caught something far more interesting: a dragonfly zooming across the screen as a pitch approached the plate from the hand of a Yankees pitcher to an awaiting Blue Jays batter.
MLB's Twitter feed shared the video:
This dragonfly likes to live dangerously.
Unlike the bird that Randy Johnson killed with a pitch several years ago, this dragonfly was able to survive his brush with death and may have learned his survival skill from the infamous bird death at the hand of The Big Unit.
Or not. I'd say this dragonfly is just lucky, plain and simple.
