Pitching motion to end all arm injuries

Interesting. It looks legit but I'd like to see a radar gun on it first. It also leaves the pitcher in a horrible fielding position but maybe its the answer. Thoughts?[/quote]

That is pretty cool... I heard Mike Marshall on The Score (chicago sports radio) and he was interesting to say the least. I don't see why the Cubs wouldn't let him tinker with Wood and Prior at this point!

no kidding. If this guy was just some random guy I'd kinda think differently but this is a guy with a PHD and was a pro pitcher, Im thinking this is fairly legit

Not sure because everyone is different. Throwing is not a natural motion to begin with so I can't imagine that the effects from pitching will be the same for everyone.

Bah, I can't get the video to play smooth enough to watch it. :-[


Edit, I sort of got it, at least enough to say that I'm skeptical. It still looks like a ton of strain on the shoulder, but hey, I'm no Ph.D.

I find it very hard to believe that a pitcher with absolutely no leg kick will have the velocity to pitch at a major league level. The motion is all upper body. Though the torso has more torque, it is still putting a lot of stress on the arm. If not taught properly, I think it could be more dangerous than the standard delivery.

What is next a guy starting a program teaching guys to throw underhand because that is a more natural motion? The pitching in that movie is very easy to pick up. Speed and accuracy aren't the only things that matter. If a hitter can pick up pitches easily they will hit them no matter how good they are. That guy is just wasting his time spinning his wheels. Getting a PhD is by no means difficult and it doesn't immediately qualify someone as knowing what they are talking about. Those kids are gaining heat on their pitches because he is working them like they do in Japan, not because of his messed up motion.
