Well a few of us took notice…
As I recall a discussion about the value of symmetrical loading and handbrak was ongoing in another thread…thus the example of Ventura illustrating this with great efficiency.
Of course there is much more worth noting and I’m pleased to see some others are interested.
[quote]has he completely shatters some of the methods thought required for high velocities (3x or triple extension/leg drive)
Crouching tigers need to beware of hidden “linear” drag’ins… :becareful: as they will sabotage rotation.
No you won’t see Ventura triple extending his back leg straight to rotate his hips or any such nonsense. Nor will you see an obsessive stride length in an attempt to get his release point as close to home plate as possible… another rotational killer. Drag lines…another Tom House favorite…of no length or consequence with Ventura.
What you will see is rotation into a relatively soft landing along with many of the rotational qualities demonstrated by high level throwers, identified by Paul Nyman years ago as “pelvic loading”, “leading with the sole”, “step over” and “rotation around the front hip joint”.
For the record Ventura led all starters in velocity this past year… averaging 96.9
Nice clips mcloven :applause:
