As far as unusual pitches go, we have the eephus pitch, the gyroball and now the faux pitch. The undisputed master of this new technique is Cardinals pitcher Seth Maness.

On a night that saw Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda ejected for having pine tar on his neck, Maness might risk being checked for use of a similarly illegal substance. Unlike Pineda, he’s seems to be using so much that he is unable to let go of the ball..

Unfortunately for him, he wasn’t pitching against the Indians’ Nick Swisher, who would likely have swung at the pitch anyway.
