Slow-mo spitter

by Justin tooley • 828,293 views

Jose Valverde spits into his glove (with the ball in it) before pitching to the Reds Devin Mesoraco 6/10/2012. This pitch was strike 3.

You can try to explain or give reasons as to why its wrong but the fact is and untill I'm proven wrong it does nothing.... Spit is spit and the amount that would have to be on the ball to make a real difference is way more than you could spit on to it... I believe its more of a superstition than anything. Think for a minute that ball is rotating and the spit is flying off by the time it makes it to the bat.

Why is everybody hating on other peoples sports? EVERY sport has its challenges to it. Try hitting a baseball when you don't even have 1 second to react when its coming at you. Try kicking a soccer ball in the upper 90 perfectly or being the goalie that has to defend for it. Try not missing a hoop constantly with a hand in your face. Playing tennis is like doing shuttles constantly while concentrating on hitting a ball. Hockey and football you get hit hard, track you give it all you have and so

NASCAR is the most watched sport in America, just found that out. As a NASCAR fan, I am pretty happy.

What matters about it is the fact that any substance on the ball, wether it's tobacco spit or just plain ol' saliva, means that it comes off the pitcher's fingers differently, giving it a more dynamic movement as it comes in towards the hitter. So yeah, it does matter because the whole point of the thing is to keep the ball off the meat of the bat. Meaning it's MUCH harder to make "square and hard" contact.

Yea, I did. 100 % of the times I was on the ice and 100% of the hockey games I have seen, NO ONE got smashed in the face with a puck. The probability is low... very low. I agree with you that hockey is the hardest hitting/action packed sport. However, you have to be a real idiot to say that soccer is not the hardest working sport. We fucking run for 45 minutes straight - 5 minute break - run 45 minutes straight again. Skate to the throat, happens (happened) what 2 times in history?

I am saying "troll" is fag terminology. Apparently, if something is popular it is good, that is why people like it. I agree with you though, JerseyShore, Justin Beaver, they suck and tons of people like them. I always argue they are terrible.

scientifically yes since it has liquid on the ball it may move one centimeter higher or lower

It makes it slippery, allowing the pitcher to manipulate the ball easier when he throws, especially if he wants to add some spin on it & make it curve. Some use snot.

There is no "best sport in the world", calling something that is an opinion. As @CYMBOLMONKEY21 said,"YOU are not the center of the Internet. YOU are not the center of sports. YOU do not know everything."

Baseball is definitely one of the toughest sports out there. You have less than half a second to react to a ball moving between 80-105 mph and you have to tell wether it's going to go straight, drop, slow down, curve, slide, etc. not to mention you're hitting a round ball with a round bat thats about the same size...this is coming from a player himself and trust me, it ain't easy

Spitting on the ball makes it much more difficult for the batter to hit that shit square and hard as fuck.

Hum, sounds interesting. I advise that we have a meeting to discuss the meeting where we need to discuss the issue at hand. Do you have any further input on this?

It is a fucking opinion. You can say soccer is the most fun, or it makes the most money, but not every person will agree with you. YOU are not the center of the Internet. YOU are not the center of sports. YOU do not know everything.

So if Soccer is "soooo popular", In the World Cup, China never is in, 1.4 Billion people, India was never in, 1.2 Billion, it's US' #4 sport 300 million, Indonesia never in, 260 million. Japan is more into baseball 180 million, Pakistan never in, 200 million, Bangladesh never in 170 million. I can go on and on... That's more than half the world population that barely plays world cup.

You can't say that soccer is the best sport in the world and call it a fact. It's an opinion. Hockey is in my opinion, the best sport I've ever played. I've played baseball for 4 years, basketball for less than a year, soccer for 3 years, and hockey for 3 years and counting. This is an opinion by me. Anyone who has a problem about that can continue having that problem because I don't give two flying fucks.

stop crying, if it really was a spitter then the officials would have done something about it, but, they didn't. Get on with your life, its just a regular season game. No where on this video can you see spit leaving his mouth and landing on the ball anyways, so I'm sorry but your argument is invalid.

When I say soccer is the best sport in the world, it is not an opinion. If it wasn't I would not be saying it was anywhere. Why do I say this? Hmm, let us see. Every country IN THE WORLD plays soccer. More people in the world watch the World Cup than all other sports finals attendances put together. Manchester United FC makes more yearly income than entire countries' GDP. So does Real Madrid and Barca. This is no opinion. You are an American shit, that does not get what makes a sport be an elite

This decreases the surface area on the seams of the ball, thus speeds up the velocity of the pitch.

I understand its illegal to do, but if you actually watch him pitch, who cares. Im from Michigan and he is a terrible closer. Yea, he went 52/52 on save opps last year. He rarely ever has a 1-2-3 inning. Every time he pitches, its sketchy.

It technically becomes a spit ball, which is an illegal pitch since it killed someone many years back.

And 501stscottie you should probably go back to middle school because the civil war was not the late 1800s it was the mid 1800s. Tell me how it isn't a sport and obviously you don't like baseball so why do you come on here?

Baseball is a joke. It is a league full of cheaters and fat people. It is the least exciting sport in the world. The games take forever. I do not care how hard it is to throw a 100mph fastball or how hard it is to hit one. It is boring and is becoming less and less popular every year. How about the fact that there is no salary cap in baseball!!!! Teams can buy world series championships! It makes no sense to me how anyone can respect baseball.

It may be the most popular sport in Europe and South America, but it is not the most popular sport in North America or Asia. The most popular sport in the United States is American football and Canada is hockey. The most popular sport in China is basketball, India is cricket, and Japan is baseball. That means that in at least half of the world soccer is not the most popular sport. In addition, just because something is popular doesnt make it the best. Justin Beiber is popular but hes terrible.
