3) Example? We all have now seen Cueto and Volquez
pitch. Every 2 seamer they throw *MOVES*. Every
one HB throws is *STRAIGHT* , although his height
provides for a steeper downward angle.
don't forget arm angle. HB is straight over the top so he'd really have to pressure one finger to get some sink and get that release point exactly where he wanted it - else the ball will remain flat through the zone.
4) Both Cueto and Volquez are short striders, and their
front foot comes down at the same place in a repeatable motion. Homer overstrides, his front footfall varies and
he has difficulty with identical reps.
weird how most latin players do that isn't it ? just an observation
