Jamie Moyer throws one as well. Only difference is that he calls it his fastball.

The Japanese are a strange bunch. They seemed to be amuzed quite easily, I guess that is a good approach to life.

big strike zone from that japanese ump !!! eddie popowski, the old 3B coach for the redsox years ago, used to throw the foul balls that he caught like that..i think the gashouse gang used to do a routine during pepper w/moves like that but never from 60'6"

I think Galarraga for Det threw one to Ortiz yesterday (might have been a real slow curve, I only saw a quick highlight).


Yep! See Big Papi's face? Stunned.

That took balls for a rookie to do something like that.


I saw that on television and it was glorious.
