Every once in a while, the Internet makes you feel good. The mysterious social media algorithms finally get it right and serve you content other than face-tuned photos, ads of those shoes you just thought about and polarizing political posts. And for a brief moment, you’re grateful for the virality of the Internet.
This is one of those times. Last week, University of Missouri hitting coach Matt Lisle found and posted a slow-mo video of a 9-year old executing a beautiful pitch. A few days later, this video has 1.25 million views. It also has a whopping 900 comments, a few of which are from prominent accounts — from the MLB to famous baseball players.
Thought this was worth sharing. She’s 9 years old. ⚾️🔥 pic.twitter.com/RJlarXYOgU

Several people commented on the thread with videos of their daughters on the mound.
When she turns 10 send her to Cooperstown where she’ll make boys not on her team cry.
It’s a beautiful thing😉 pic.twitter.com/sTHYnimzFc
