If you like baseball then this is a site you’re going to want to check out!

ESPN brings you Anatomy of a Pitch – an interactive analysis of the anatomy of seven different pitches from MLB pitchers.

When you arrive at the site you’ll have seven different pitchers you can select. If you mouse over the image it will tell you what kind of pitch they have (sinker, fastball, slider, curveball, and changeup).

When you click on the one you want to see it will take a moment to load. Then it begins to play like a video. You’ll hear the pitcher talk about their best pitch, and see the pitch. The pitcher will walk you through how they pitch.

When ┬áthat’s done, you can scroll down the page to learn more about how that pitcher throws the ball. You’ll get a slow step by step version of the pitch and find how batters fair against the pitch.

You can navigate to the next pitcher by clicking the arrows on the side of the page.

This is a cool way to check out a deeper dimension of the mechanics behind pitching.

Go check it out!
