Japanese baseballer throws a rare pitch that fools everybody – even the umpire.
Japanese baseballer Kazuhito Tadano pulled out one of the oldest tricks in the book, but perhaps one of the most rare, too.
Playing for the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters (yes, that’s correct), the former MLB pitcher threw a slow, looping pitch that disappeared into the sky only to drop perfectly in the catcher’s mitt.
Apparently this pitching technique was first used in the 1940’s, but rarely ever seen since.
