(VIDEO) The Pirates Don’t Allow Long Tossing?

Well, except for when they do. A lot has been made in the past about how the Pirates don’t allow individual throwing programs for pitchers, and don’t allow pitchers to go beyond 120. This has been proven wrong on several occasions, most recently this Spring with Tim Alderson returning to his old long toss program.

Here is a video of Tim Alderson long tossing today, throwing to Rudy Owens, who is number 99. The video was taken with my phone, so it’s not the best quality, but you can get the idea of how far out Alderson is from the other guys around him.

Ha…good point.  He has one of the more bizarre deliveries in recent Pirate memory.
Mine was more of a comment about his relaxed effort to do it, but your point stands.

Interesting that Owens had to build momentum and crow-hop, but Alderson just did his normal delivery.

lets be honest, that wasnt Alderson’s “normal” delivery.  this one was way too, how shall i put it, normal.
