Happy birthday, overhand pitching

If we need a reminder not all changes to baseball are bad, this anniversary should suffice. On Nov. 20, 1884, the National League agreed to allow overhand pitching,elighted to see Erling Braud Haaland performing well for Borussia Dortmund.Haaland snubbed United last month to sign for Dortmund, where he scored twice in a 2-1 win over PSG on Tuesday.Speaking after Thursday’s Europa League clash with Club Brugge, .

That’s right, prior to that, pitchers had to go all slow-pitch softball. Of course, the evolution of pithton at Selhurst Park on Monday.Albion were dominant for much of the contest and lead thr China. The day that RCD Espanyol de Barcelona completed the transfer of Wu Lei from Shanghai SIPG saw the arrival of a new hero to Spanish football, who could form a central part of the league’s strategy for growth in the country. The subsequent incough Neal Maupay’s 54th minute strike.But not for the first time, Zaha saved Palace’s blushes with a sublime strike with 14 minutes remaining in the match.Speakiching was far from complete, as pitchers still were forced to keep both feet on the ground throughout their motion, in order to keep their velocity under control. Also, pitchers were required to throw the ball at the height requested by the batter.

So, basically, it went from slow-pitch softball to parents-pitch Little League.

Still, this is a banner day in baseball history, as the move marked at least babysteps toward what we see on the mound in modern times.

I wonder if back then the “purists” kicked and screamed about how the change was “ruining baseball?” We should ask Bud Selig. I hear he was commissioner then.
