It takes years to perfect, its really just a matter of technique though. Search for hand positions ans such.

a very strong arm
and years of training

if kids do a curve ball too early in baseball they can wreck their pitching arm

The stitching on a baseball makes the airflow around it differantly which allows it to glide through the air like that. Very hard to do.

This is a guy who throws wiffle balls (white, hollow plastic balls). He ended up on Tosh.0.

Web redemption?

Correct.

The kind of ball he is using is called a "Junkball". It basically is a plastic ball with holes in it. When you cover a certain set of holes you will cause the ball to curve like that.

Baseball players however by applying different spins to the ball. This is caused by the seams on the ball cutting through the air. And theres the crazy ******* knuckleball which can go anywhere.. It doesnt spin at all on the way to the plate and can go in any direction at random. (see comment number 1)

I have no idea why you got thumbed down. I found that informative.

But isnt that against the rules.

Nah, the junkbals are just used when kids are playing in the park. Pros all use the same ball.

How number #5 comment stated, its how the ball is held and manipulated. Stitching on the ball allows the pitcher to position his fingers and hand. As time progress's you begin to become aware of how you move with technique and power, which is to a pro pitcher level of understanding. Number 54 on the Cincinnati Reds (Chapman) has thrown a 105 mph pitch. However, the draw back to such difficult pitches can destroy your arm if used wrong, such as the Curve-ball at a young age. Pitchers who can throw difficult pitches tend to tired quicker. Also #5 stated that it is a wiffle ball, which can be easily manipulated with wind due to it's holes on the ball.

First off, that's a wiffle ball, and second, it's a mixture of how you hold the ball and the movement of your wrist upon release of the ball

You merely adopted the Freedom... We were born in it, shaped by it.

You simply adopted freedom. We were born in it, molded by it. We didn't see commies until we were already 300 freedoms old, and by then it was only Filthy Communist Scum.

So you may have more freedom, but do you truly have the ability to control that freedom?
The freedom you hold has no power if you cannot control it, to bend it to your will.
