Alabama's Kenny Bell, Amari Cooper Don't Understand Why Baseball Players Can't Easily Beat Out Throws To First

It's 90 feet from home plate to first base. On average, it usually takes most baseball players roughly four seconds to get up the line. 

Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper and former Crimson Tide wideout Kenny Bell are having a hard time understanding why it isn't easier for baseball players to beat out throws to first base.

Bell and Cooper are both speedy football players, so they'd likely be better runners than the majority of college and MLB players. Having never played the sport, though, they probably would have a difficult time making contact.
