Daisuke Matsuzaka invents new baseball pitch?

Some are saying that Japanese pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka has invented a new "miracle pitch" called a gyroball. The pitch is purported to spin like a spiraled football and break in a way that makes it impossible to hit.

If real, this would be the first new pitch in baseball since the split-fingered fastball 40 years ago.

Here is a slow-motion movie of Matsuzaka throwing the mystery pitch.
