Don't worry: it's still an painfully useless analogy if you are familiar with baseball. You really aren't missing anything.
Major League Baseball (MLB) rule 2.04 specifies that " the distance between the pitcher’s plate and home base (the rear point of home plate) shall be 60 feet, 6 inches" (18.44 meters).
MLB rule 3.01 specifies that the ball be "not less than nine nor more than 9 1/4 inches in circumference". That is 72.64–74.68 mm in diameter, let's split it down the middle and use 73.66 mm.
The MLB definition of a strike includes "a legal pitch when so called by the umpire, which: [...] is not struck at, if any part of the ball passes through any part of the strike zone".
A United States quarter is 24.26 mm in diameter.
Thus, the difficulty of aligning the transceivers is similar to the difficulty of throwing a ball of 73.66 mm diameter through a hole of 97.88 mm diameter from a distance of 18.44 meters.
There, now anyone in the world should have a good idea of how difficult it is. ;-)
