Adidas ad — whoops!

Just took a look at the Dick’s Sporting Goods GameOn catalog, which features products for baseball and softball. As I was paging through, I stopped at page 18, where there’s a full page ad for Adidas that features Monica Abbott in mid-pitch. Cool, I thought.

Then I looked at her feet. I first noticed her aggressive stride. Then I looked at the other foot. Her pivot foot is clearly an inch or two off the ground. Not a lot, just an inch or two. But it is off the ground. I guess the folks at Adidas don’t know the fastpitch pitching rules for women.

Nothing much to add to it. I was just sort of amused. You would think if you’re a shoe company that you would’ve looked at the shoes.
