OAKLAND, Calif. — Arizona Diamondbacks pitchers aspire to be like Randy Johnson.
Zach Garren accidentally came close to imitating the Hall of Famer.
As he warmed up in the outfield before Arizona’s game in Oakland on Wednesday, Garen threw a curveball It hit a bird in flight, apparently killing it.
The pitch was captured by cameras at the Diamondbacks’ broadcaster, Ballysports Arizona.
Johnson killed the notorious bird During the 2001 Spring Training Games. During a pitch during a game against the San Francisco Giants, a bird crossed in front of home plate and was destroyed by a baseball.
