Umpire Dan Bellino caught a 91-mph fastball with his biceps

Imagine having so much strength, you can stop a 91-mph ball in its tracks without the use of a glove. Sounds pretty unbelievable, right? Well, not if you're umpire Dan Bellino.
In the top of the eighth during the Rockies' 8-2 victory over the Reds on Sunday, Mike Dunn threw a fastball to Joey Votto -- the ball was inside and lodged itself in between Bellino's arm and body:

It ended up being called a wild pitch, which resulted in Jesse Winker and Tucker Barnhart advancing. 
The craziest part was it doesn't even shake Bellino. That ball was thrown so hard, and he went right back to doing his job.
