Watch: Foul ball illusion will make your brain hurt
While enjoying Wednesday's game from the on-field bullpen seats, Wood and the rest of the Cubs relievers didn't flinch as Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Jonathan Villar riffled a foul ball at them.
At first glance, the ball appeared to reach the bullpen, though another angle makes it look as if the ball never reaches the players. Judging by the bullpen's stoic reaction, they're not letting us know either way.
If only the ball had avoided Steve Bartman that way.
