OriginsEdit

In 1920 in the Indians-Yankee's Baseball match, Ray Chapman was struck in the head by a pitch by Yankee player Carl Mays. It was reported that the ball in question was scuffed, damaged and stained, making it difficult to see in the darkened stadium. The sound of the ball hitting Chapman's head was said to be so loud, Mays thought it had connected with the bat and he began to run for first base. Chapman died 12 hours later of internal damage and he remains the only major league player to have died by being hit by a pitch.

EffectsEdit

As a result of it's brutal creation, the blackened and damaged ball has an incredibly destructive ability. Regardless of the speed it is pitched, it always connects with meteoric force capable of shattering walls and leaving craters a meter wide. Due to this, it is placed in a sealed glass display box.
