The motion is so smooth, the mechanics so polished, it sometimes appears as if Darien baseball’s Henry Williams is pitching with no effort at all.
Make no mistake, however. When Williams throws a pitch, it’s always with a purpose.
“With how smooth he is, it might not appear that he’s actually throwing that hard because it looks effortless, but the ball pops,” Darien head coach Mike Scott said. “He gets on top of that ball and it’s on you before you know it. His mechanics are so so refined for somebody of his age.”
