"I've been throwing since I was six (about 21 years). My father taught me how to throw knives, hawks, bolas, spears, throwing sticks, spikes, basically anything I could get my hands on. The first time someone tossed me a baseball I was very confused, until my father instantly solved my dilema. He yelled over to me, "just throw it like a knife"!
