Perhaps you’ve already seen this clip of Ironside’s George Stubbs throwing a lefty backhand into a tight seam in the defense:

Pretty stuff. Brady Meisenhelder has some further comment over on Pulled Disc about this throwing choice:

It is important to understand how throwing and body angles change what is possible on the field and how one can use movement to open up options.
