Science of Baseball – A Lesson from the Colorado Rockies
If you dig deep enough into the video library, you’re likely to find a much younger Steve Spangler (yes… the hair is a little longer and the voice a little higher). This clip is from my Wonder Why? segment on News for Kids and features Curtis Leskanic, pitcher for the Colorado Rockies in 1995. Curtis shared the science and throwing technique behind his curve ball.
Excellent video. No better way to tech science than to relate it too something the kids are already interested in.
I agree with Oliver!! Kids would love this stuff
I think the important thing that they show in this video is that the spin in created from snapping down on the ball, NOT from twisting at the elbow like most young kids try to do.. The motion is just like pulling on a window shade, there shouldn’t be any twisting motion in the arm at all… Cool video!
