1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Hard Balled", Way to Die #156, is the seventh and final death to be featured in "Dead Wrongs", which aired on September 28, 2010.


School jock Brooke is a popular athlete who is part of the school's lacrosse team but is also a notorious bully, known to physically harass anyone he views as inferior (a new student, a geeky chess club member, and a nerdy marching band leader).

On one afternoon, he tries to impress two females during a lacrosse practice and then harasses his victims again. As Brooke gives another shot, he is distracted by the school's popular girl walking by, unaware of the ball as it hit Brooke in the perfect place, causing commotio cordis and leading to his death of arrhythmia, sending the toxic lacrosse player and jock to Hell as he deserves.
