There are two very important questions in baseball.
No. 1 is whether or not a hot dog is a sandwich. For the record, it is.
No. 2 is whether hitting a baseball is the most difficult thing to do in sports.
Most of us might never know that answer since we haven't been given such opportunities. But Kyler Murray, the A's prospect and Oklahoma quarterback, could be an exception to that rule.
The dual-sport athlete has had enough exposure to both baseball and football at a competitive level to make such an observation. And he answered simply when asked on the day he'd find out if he'd be the recipient of the 2018 Heisman Trophy.

If you listen carefully, Murray responds before the reporter can even finish asking him a question about hitting a baseball.
So now we know.
