I assumed everyone was just aiming for the front of the plate and throwing the s*** out of the ball. Is that not usually the case? Maybe the talent level was a few steps below back then.
There was more 2-bounce in that video because 2-bounce had just been implemented by WAKA, so some of the pitchers were throwing the way they'd throw in league play anyway.
In the BoE that same year, Make It Rain and Frosty Balls threw a lot of 2-bounce even though that was a 1-bounce tourney as well. I'd expect that that's more like what you'd see in VA Beach.
