Watch Tim Lincecum Pitch In Slow Motion (Video)

Not many people realize the amount of strain and torque a pitcher puts on his body with each pitch he delivers towards home plate.  It may look simple, but each pitch must be delivered with the proper precision in order to maintain pinpoint accuracy and avoid injuries.

Few know this better than two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum, who took the time to talk a bit about the importance of proper mechanics during this Red Bull Moment.  And if his words aren’t enough to convince you, perhaps the sight of him pitching at 1000 frames per second will.

Hat Tip to reader Nicholas for the find.
