Grip: 2-Seam Fastball, will cut down and away…typical strikeout pitch.

Posture: Power-T to generate hip drive for maximum velocity.

Face: Eyes locked on the target.

Hands: Pitching hand cocked back to hide ball from batter.

Probable Outcome: Fastball that catches the outside corner for a called strike three.



Grip: Palm Ball. Comes in slow and doesn’t move.

Posture: No Power-T. Right hand hanging down towards dirt.

Face: Eyes and mouth show fear that the batter will hit the ball over 600 feet.

Hands: Pitching hand open so batter can see ball during delivery.

Probable Outcome: Ball will be hit so far it will need FAA clearance & a flight attendant.

Final outcome? W’s smoked nicely over the plate; Obama’s (thrown from IN FRONT of the mound) bounced in the dirt into catch’s glove. Most of the MSM kindly cut away from the short pitch and only showed the delivery and catch with the ball.

Poor King Obama couldn’t even wear his crown for the occasion. Sometimes life is so unfair!
