Is the distance that a person throws a baseball a discrete or continuous variable?

Distance is known most often as a continuous variable as it can take up and $\mathbb{R}$ number.
for example, you can throw a ball 25.784m
something like the amount of people hit a home run in a game would be discrete as that value can only be a $\mathbb{N}$ number as you can not have 1.3 people hit a home run.

Do you have a similar question?
