And so here we go again—round and round the mulberry bush and getting nowhere fast. Now let me add my 75 cents’ worth on the subject (inflation, you know).
The sidearm delivery is actually the easiest on the arm and shoulder, being the most natural delivery, and believe me, it puts no strain on said arm and shoulder. There are two ways to deliver a pitch this way—long-arm, as exemplified by Walter Johnson, and short-arm, like Jeff Nelson used to do. The beauty part of pitching this way, however one does it, is that batters can’t pick up the pitches, they can’t set themselves because they don’t know where the darn thing is coming from. And sidearmers have a weapon other types of pitchers don’t have: the crossfire. How well I know, because in my playing days I was one of those exasperating, infuriating sidearmers who used the crossfire all the time and racked up more than my share of strikeouts. And I never had any arm or shoulder problems.
So…if you’re really comfortable with this delivery, stay with it, and don’t let anyone try to change what you’re doing. 8)[/quote]
Do you believe LHP stands on the Left side and RHP stands on the right side of the rubber? in general and especially sidearm?
