An Unnatural Motion

With the new baseball season here, I'm reminded the way most pitchers throw the ball is not so good for their arms. This South Korean pitcher at the recent World Baseball Classic puts a lot of strain on his shoulder and elbow and it wouldn't be a shock if he finds himself having surgery one of these days. It's no longer unusual for high school pitchers to have arm surgery thanks to throwing curveballs and sliders before their arms are strong enough for such pitches.
