A kid in a batting cage took a swing off a tee and what happened next nearly defies explanation

OK. Bear with me on this one. because it's going to get weird.
A video surfaced on Saturday of a kid taking a swing inside a batting cage. No big deal, right? Millions of kids the world over do this, all the time. 
But then ... things happened. Things of the "um, what just happened?" variety. Just take a look:

So, the baseball was hit off the tee, bounced back and came to a rest right on top of the tee again.
I don't know much about physics, but that seems extremely odd and incredibly random, which is why the kid's reaction -- jumping around and yelling, incredulous like the rest of us watching from home -- was perfect, too.
That kid is all of us.
