After analyzing and studying the ball’s behavior and its dynamics, the results show the ball is unpredictable at speeds over 72 km/hr. This situation is aggravated by the light weight of the ball, about 440gr. When it is hit, it has what it is called “knuckle effect”, making it very hard to control.
The US team should have put RA Dickey on the squad as a striker, or at least put Doug Mirabelli in goal.
Good luck keepers...
