Torii Hunter Vs. Yu Darvish’s Eephus Pitch: Let’s Watch The Fun


No one informed me that Yu Darvish has an eephus pitch: perhaps this is the first time he’s rolled it out. This one to Torii Hunter was quite comical. Most interesting non-strike I’ve seen this year.

The Pirates’ Rip Sewell popularized the blooper pitch in the 1940s, although I prefer to believe that its creator was Bingo Long of the Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings.

WARNING: Pitching two of these in a row? Not recommended.

In the 1980s, no one could hit one.

I want to watch this over and over.
