Zita, crossfire

would jered weaver be an example of the crossfire you were talking about?

Maybe—I’m not sure, because he has a few different deliveries. I think a better example would be that guy who used to pitch for Seattle and the Yankees a few years back—Jeff Nelson, who was a sidearmer and who used it extensively. There are a few of them around now, I just can’t think of their names at the moment (but then, I just got up and I haven’t hnad breakfast yet). In any event, it’s a very nice move, and very effective.

does cross fire boost you velocity any

No…it has no effect on velocity. It’s another angle from which to deliver a pitch.
