Softball Ace

May-June 2012

The ace of the Harvard Crimson's softball pitching staff, Rachel Brown ’12, shows how she grips and throws her best pitches: the rise ball, chamge-up, and curve. Coach Jenny Allard analyzes Brown's pitching and her strengths on the mound. There is also footage of Brown pitching against the Columbia Lions in a game played on Friday, April 6, 2009, at Harvard.
