Besies Military press....but i understand what you mean.
well der bob, although i like me some good ol fashion military press, i've got to say that the bench press is still the most quality lift. i like it because the bench press is an exercise for the upper body. For pitching purposes, it is used to stimulate the pectorals, deltoids, and triceps. The exercise focuses on the development of the pectoralis major muscle as well as other supporting muscles including the anterior deltoids, serratus anterior, coracobrachialis, scapulae fixers, trapezii, and the triceps which are vital to ones pitching mechanics and accuracy.
