Totally agree with that. Maybe what it is for me is that I just think a softball is a dumb way to test it. That said, I'm not sure what I'd nominate as a replacement. Maybe a shot put or a javelin. Perhaps even the log toss that the Rogue and Again Faster athletes did in Tahoe, though I recognize that those are different sorts of throw than a baseball/softball throw.
