Casey Weathers is a pitcher in the Cleveland Indians minor league system. This video is going viral this week, although was uploaded on youtube in late 2015 by Driveline Baseball, a pretty popular organization that specializes in pitching and the science behind velocity and arm health.

This is clearly a go all out and throw the f out of the baseball into a net drill done with variations of hops and weighted balls. But hey, Driveline are the experts so take some notes. Here’s the full video with Cody Buckel (Rangers), Casey Weathers, Eric Slim, and Trevor Bauer. Note: the highest velocity recorded by an outfielder in 2015 was 103mph. This is some serious cheese I don’t care how many hops you take
