Yu Darvish throws five pitches at once

Well, he doesn’t quite, as awesome as that would be. But nearly as awesome is this GIF overlaying each of his different pitches. It is a great illustration of how well he disguises what he is going to throw – he releases the ball from pretty much the same place and in the same way each time, yet the trajectory varies widely. Which I guess explains why he is so hard to hit.

GIF from Reddit, and half the internet today
