All Hail the Eephus Pitch
I don't know if they give out Academy Awards to 5 minute long documentaries, but can someone please get the creator of this video a goddamn medal or something? Easily one of the most emotionally upstanding and visually magnificent videos I have seen all day, this short documentary introduces us to Japanese pitcher Kazuhito Tadano, one of the last remaining masters of the lost art of the eephus pitch. The video also features a number of scientists performing tests on Tadano to try and better understand the knee buckling superpower of the eephus pitch. Science rules.
