Or are they anticipating based on count, pitcher tendency, etc.?
    I look for a dot when catching dd. Not sure how one is suppose to read direction of spin, especially if it's good spin rate at 60+. I though FFS had a better idea with tracking the trajectory.

    IMO the biggest difference between AAA and MLB players is raw hitting mechanics. Some mechanics changes can completely change how early you have to commit to the swing, and a later commitment allows them to see the ball longer.

    Wires crossed, or a screw that got away from her?

    Thank you. The catcher seems to be performing the same right knee dropping action on this pitch as well.

    The amount of mythology is amazing. The announcer are driving me crazy.

    Every inside pitch is a screwball and every outside pitch is a curve...and when they do super slow motion, every pitch simply has corkscrew spin.

    I agree!!! And I keep rewinding and rewatching to see the break and different spins but I see nothing different than a corkscrew.
