VIDEO: WSD vs. Spider Tack And 100MPH Fastballs

The words "spider tack" have been the hot words in the baseball world for months now. Who is using it? How much does it actually affect performance? Can it turn a former division III bullpen catcher into a pitcher with a world class arsenal? 

The answer to all of the questions above are answered in the video. The TL/DR is this: it feels like the ball is velcro'd to your fingers. It is a VERY weird feeling. Once you find the proper release/slot of the pitch, it feels GREAT though. You command your pitches way, way better and you can feel the difference of the pitch you throw once it's released. It's hard to explain, but I can definitely see why pitchers love this shit.

On a separate note, I was also called out by a bunch of lemmings on Twitter. I said I could put 5 of 100 100MPH fastballs in play:

And on and on it went. I have faster hands than Delino Deshields, bitch. Is that enough to put 100MPH in play consistently? Watch the video to find out!!! 

Thanks to Northwestern University, Coach Reynolds, Coach Napoleon and the NU athletic department for having us out. This program is LIGHT YEARS ahead of where it was a decade or so ago. Legit B1G program that just set a conference record for team bombs in a season. The facilities are top notch, the support from the university is very apparent, and if you're a 17 year old D1 recruit looking to play B1G baseball and get a world class education, NU is the place to be. Just ask Joe Girardi, JA Happ, Luke Farrell and Eric Jokisch - they'll tell you all about it.
