It’s not uncommon for professional baseball teams to feature entertainment during the breaks between innings. The Atlanta Braves are no exception.
One of their contests is quite simple: Run across the outfield warning track and try to beat a given opponent.
The catch? That opponent is “The Freeze.” And The Freeze is really, really fast.
A video surfaced online of a young man who got an enormous head start on The Freeze and still lost. Impressively, he kept his lead until almost the very end, but The Freeze prevailed.

Don’t tease the Freeze.
What can I say, I'm a man of the people. Couldn't do it without the fans support
