Also, I have some new information concerning the "gyroball revolution" here in the U.S.  Seems that Baseball Prospectus injury guru Will Carroll has taught the pitch to an Indiana high school kid named Joey Niezer.  Will mentioned to me in an August interview that he is the only person who knows how to teach the gyroball.  I thought he was just messing around, but it might be true.  At least in this country.  It's an interesting interview so check it out if you haven't already.

Bonus:  The Juice blog has a QuickTime video up of Niezer throwing the gyroball during practice, filmed from behind a chain-link fence.
