I Can’t Believe He Threw a Strike

Let’s just say that in Japanese baseball being sneaky can sometimes work in your advantage. Take for instance, this pitcher who throws a totally dope pitch in a game, and somehow slides it in there for a strike against a truly baffled hitter, methinks the umpire was just so impressed he called it a strike regardless.

All I can think about when I see this pitch is the Dunkin Donuts ad where some Fenway food vendor guy is teaching Pedro Martinez how to REALLY be an effective pitcher and teaches him trick pitches like this. I’ve looked everywhere I can think of and can’t find that commercial at all. But I swear it exists, if I find it I’ll post it as well.
