Move Over Gyroball

Satoru Komiyama has come up with a new pitch and it’s called the "Shake."  Move over Gyroball there’s a new pitch in town.  How long before this video reaches Hank and the negotiations begin?  According to NPB Tracker "Komiyama never throws the shake faster than about 55 mph."  Sounds like the Japanese version of Mike Mussina.

  • Must have the ump fooled too. The second pitch they showed—the one and one—looked almost a foot inside.

  • Weird movement? Check.
    Fools the batter? Check.
    Fools the ump? Check.
    Fools the catcher? Check.
    Sure sounds like a knuckleball to me.
