Oh, boy.

I can envision, with fingers shaking, people hitting the ALL-CAPS button to send off some hate-mail over the title of this one.

Breeeeeeeeeeeeathe.

Today’s video tip shows a type of curve ball that I was taught in high school that does not require the pitcher to do some of the things that can lead to additional stress on the arm.  As I state immediately in the video, there is no such thing as a “safe” pitch in baseball.  I also do not condone young players throwing curve balls.  Today’s tip is for players who have been deemed by qualified people to be physically mature enough to better handle the rigors of a curve ball.  As always, proceed with caution with any pitch you throw.
