Switch-pitcher. That's right, a switch-pitcher in the minors.
Insane, behind-the-back pitch by Japanese pitcher. Somehow, it's called a strike, but this seems to be "set-up," as there are no people in the stands, and the batter isn't wearing a helmet. But it's still freakin' cool.
Droperatta Fairly funny clip set to operatic music. A good waste of about a minute.
