That's interesting. It seems to have much earlier break than MLB sliders today. Of course, there is significantly more break as well. Because it comes out flat from the hand, unlike a curveball, it seems to take a sharp downward left turn about a third of the way to the plate.

I wonder what speed the pitch was thrown at.
