This video is simply excellent with regards to the information it contains. It is most enjoyable to watch as it both entertains and informs. Enjoyed seeing some of the hardest throwers ever in the game and some of the hitters they faced( and their commentaries). The scientific reference-approach to compare pitchers of yesterday with those of today was fun. Besides the sports public this DVD a also a must for any baseball fan, player and coach. Those of us with a science background would enjoy this even more. This ancient form of combat between a rock thrower (pitcher) and a club holder is discussed in the "The Prehistories of Baseball."

I'm not a baseball fan but this is worth the watch. Even someone who doesn't know about the sport could watch this and appreciate the battle between pitcher and catcher, between a person throwing a rock and a person trying to hit it with a stick.
