A high school pitcher in Illinois drilled a passing bird while delivering a pitch during a game last week.

Springfield (Ill.) Sacred Heart-Griffin School pitcher Ryne Elvers was delivering a pitch against Springfield (Ill.) Southeast High at Lanphier Park in a “City Series” game. The crowd watched in amazement as the bird went down.

The most incredible part of the video is when you see the bird fly away, minus a few feathers.
