Looking for footage of...

Postby gostanford07 » Thu Jul 13, 2006 10:32 pm

The Homerun Derby, more specifically the slow motion replays from the side angle. If you saw the thing you probably know what I'm talking about. Just wondering if any footage is up online yet. Thanks.

MLB.com actually has the whole derby to download - although it will cost you a whole $3.95. :-D

I didn't get to see much of the derby, but I am interested in any slow motion footage from the side! Did they do this for all players?

You make it sound like there was a topless chick in the crowd behind one of the players. Why is the slo-mo, side footage so important?

:-?

BAH, why does eveyrthing always cost money lol? I was looking for a free option, but owell. Anyway, I watched the Derby off and on, so I'm not sure if they had those replays for everyone. When they did however it was awesome. You really got to see a big league swing broken down. It was great. Thanks for the link too.

Eh, I did a lot of work at uni, looking at the biomechanics. To get super slow motion of a big league hitter from a clear side view is pretty rare. I'll probably use it as a coaching tool.

P.S. David Wright's swing is textbook.

JT, the sideview just looked really sweet. To see all the sluggers instant swing was unreal. It was really cool to see them connect with the sweet-spot of the bat. B-)

Was there any slow-mo footage shown in the second round, if so, I know a way to get that free. I'll post it on an upload site later today. B-)
