'MythBusters' Recruits San Francisco Giants Ace for Fragile Task (Video)

On the latest episode of Discovery Channel's MythBusters, the team enlist the help of perfect game thrower and San Francisco Giants ace Matt Cain for some much-needed help.
It's quite a sight to see team member Tory getting blasted over his lack of arm speed as he and Cain compete to see who should participate in the myth busting.

MythBusters airs 8 p.m. Sundays on Discovery Channel.
