Eight photos of Rich Hill's delivery that showcase his potential for other possible careers

Rich Hill is not just a great story -- a 36-year-old injury-plagued journeyman who became an ace, sporting one of the best curveballs in the game. He's also a pitcher with an immensely strange follow-through on his delivery.

It's uncanny, like a robot trying to test out his AI and stumbling in his first steps. His arms and legs shoot out in opposite directions like a marionette. Yet, it's undeniably effective: His ERA in six starts with the Dodgers this year was 1.83, the lowest on the team among starting pitchers not named Clayton Kershaw.

Before Hill takes the mound in Game 3 of the NLCS against the Cubs, let's look at eight different settings where his follow-through would look right at home. 

He'd feel comfortable watching Less Than Jake or Reel Big Fish, skanking around the whole time:

He could become an expert yoga instructor:

He might be a match for Ralph Macchio in "The Karate Kid":

description

He could become the next "Property Brother":

Or perhaps become the next modernist sculpture, showing the physics of man:

He might finally kick that football:

Or he might star in "Man on Wire 2: Even More Wire"

At the very least, he should be an effective duck deterrent at the park:
