I once drove cross country with a friend, and we tried to play whiffleball in every state we entered. But we never figured out how to throw these kinds of pitches. Rob alexbain: Had a conversation with my buddy over lunch about Whiffleball, and he mentioned there were crazy videos on YouTube of pitchers that are like magicians. I love in this video, once it gets to the point where there’s live batters, how sure they are that the ball is outside, and then they just drop their heads when they hear the tin sound. Makes me long for summer.
