Really cool analysis of a pitched baseball, and what makes his pitch so special. I was lucky enough to go to a game at Yankee Stadium a few weeks ago, it was "Mariano Rivera Day", and as luck would have it he had to come out and make one of his signature saves.

Even got a bobble-head doll out of it!

Hope you enjoy ...
