I was wondering if anybody could help me out and give me the names of some leftys with “weird” arm angles. By weird I mean drop down sidearm or basically anything abnormal in their delivery.
off the top of the head I’ve thought of Brian Fuentes, but I was just wondering if you guys could help I’m trying to look up some videos.
I know there has to be some funky middle relievers I don’t know about
Randy Johnson has a pretty low arm angle. Not quite sidearm, but it seems to be below 45 degrees in many videos. Didn’t seem to hurt his effectiveness much
Here’s a video clip of Lanky’s nomination:
Here is Southpaw’s:
Mike Myers… lefty specialist.
I can think of quite a few lefthanders who throw sidearm or close to it. Example: the Blue Jays’ Aaron Loup, who throws sidearm and uses the crossfire almost all the time, and when he’s on the batters can’t touch him. And I can think of a few righthanders who do likewise, such as a guy named Louis Coleman in the KC Royals’ system, who throws sidearm and uses the crossfire all the time, and when he’s on the batters can’t touch him. No doubt there are more…
