    Fastpitch exposure on Yahoo

    Saw this article on the Yahoo frontpage this morning. I'm not going to get into detail about how pitching a perfect game against a team that shows up in t-shirts is a momentous feat, as there are at least a dozen members here who's daughters always pitch perfect games. The point is that at...

    Any experience with the GoPro Hero cameras?

    Has anyone used a GoPro Hero3 camera for the purposes of slow motion filming in order to analyze athletic motion? I've seen some good videos out in the wild from the camera but I'm looking for more first hand experience. Thanks! -W
