Pitchers have been more and more working to mess with the timing and rhythm of batters. On the MLB stage, pitchers like Johnny Cueto and Nestor Cortes experiment with shimmying, rocking, and fast pitching to achieve the higher hand.

At one stage of baseball, a hitter is attempting to determine his personal solution to upset the pitcher’s timing earlier than it occurs to him.

A video went viral on Twitter of a Japanese highschool baseball participant who is not only a switch-hitter, however switches sides of the plate between every pitch. The Twitter account with the deal with asahi_koshien posted a video with (if Twitter’s translation to English is right) Ko Yamaguchi on the plate bouncing from batter’s field to batter’s field.

It was unfold to U.S. audiences partly due to Twitter accounts like Jomboy and Rex Chapman sharing the video.

Sadly, the video didn’t present any precise swings, as Yamaguchi was exhibiting bunt, pulling again, and usually (apparently) attempting to mess with the pitcher’s focus and talent to determine the within a part of the plate greater than attempting to drive the ball.

In fact, such antics led to some adults within the Twitter feedback saying that {the teenager} deserved to be hit by the pitch for switch-hitting in the course of the at-bat, which is a weird factor to want upon a toddler, no matter the truth that on this state of affairs the grownup can be a pitcher presumably attempting to get the batter out. In actual life, Yamaguchi did get hit by a pitch and appeared slightly happy that he acquired on base, so it most likely wouldn’t have been an excellent “punishment,” anyway.

Baseball gamers are at all times in search of new methods to get the sting over their opponents, and it is a new, attention-grabbing approach to take action. Might it catch on? Hopefully movies of some swings from Yamaguchi will make their solution to U.S. baseball Twitter quickly.
