I love the curveball illusion. So, is the study claiming that curveballs don't really curve?

Kyle, I know! This may be one of the best of all time, very action packed collection.

Matt, I'm not exactly sure, but a curve ball actually breaks down, not left to right (like a slider), so I think they're saying that the break with the visual effect gives the appearance it's also moving laterally.
