If the Inverted W is so necessary to velocity, then why is it that so many successful, hard throwers don't make it?
Never said it was, this is something that you have tried to pass off to everyone in the form of "the sky is falling" you will throw your arm off.
And not that long ago you were told that very same thing by someone who has taken the time to do REAL research:
To which you responded:
So you were told several months ago that the inverted W was about throwing efficiency and NOT maximizing velocity. but again you really don't understand what throwing efficiency is. Why? I can only surmise because you simply refuse to open your eyes and do some real research.
I found another post of yours (eteamz) particular interest:
I can understand your belief (need) to focus on injury ( your personal experiences shape your belief system). What I cannot excuse is your overzealous ego which substitutes personal fabrication for lack of knowledge.
My experiences were somewhat different. In high school I pitched and was the second-best pitcher on my team. The guy who was better than I was threw a lot harder and was about 6 inches shorter, and for the life of me I could never figure out why. I'm sure that has had something to do with my "take" on throwing a baseball.
And last but not least I have said a number of times that I feel that a slinging arm action probably has greater velocity potential than the inverted W. But that slingers typically do not have good breaking balls (curveballs) nor do they have exceptional fastball movement as compared to inverted W or flat W. throwers. All of which is part of my definition of throwing efficiency, i.e. the best combination of speed, movement and location. I refrain from using the word velocity, velocity is a vector quantity, when applied to throwing a baseball implies both speed and location.
Again, you need to do a better job researching/homework before you start taking apart someone else's opinions. :twisted:
