Despite three batting titles, even Jose Altuve had trouble making contact when playing stickball
The World Series champion second baseman dropped in on a stickball game while in Venezuela and despite having the smoothest swing, he had a little trouble making contact:

It's kind of like how Superman did when he struck out in a Little League game -- just without the temper tantrum (of course, the issue later explains why Superman hurled the ball into space).
Of course, any pitchers that plan to use this video as a scouting report on how to beat Altuve should probably check themselves. Because after four straight years of bashing baseballs no matter what was thrown his way, I don't think there's any chance to get Altuve out without giving him a tiny bat.
