Softball Video Of The Week 3/5/17 – Joan Joyce Explains The Slingshot Pitch

The Slingshot Pitch with Joan Joyce Many people say that Joan Joyce was the greatest fastpitch softball player of all times. In this video Joan explains the basics of the slingshot pitch.

As a pitcher she used the slingshot pitch. This was in a time before the windmill pitch became the dominate pitch in the sport of fastpitch softball.

Her list of accomplishments are so long that it would hard to list them all. One of her most impressive accomplishments was when she struck out baseball legend Ted Williams in several exhibition games.

Joan’s talent seemed to be endless as she has been a pro softball player, pro golfer, pro volley ball player, pro bowler, pro baseketball player and more. Joan Joyce holds her position strong as one of the greatest female athletes of all time.
