He drove the ball at an impressive 88MPH... but it wasn't fast enough to outrun the lightning that struck it at 670,000,000 MPH.

"I heard the thunder and my instinct was to run... It was all a blur," Gomez said. "It could have hit me... it could have hit any of us. It was actually pretty scary after I was thinking about it for a while."
