No pause, I would guess. I don't know about you, but I can't throw a ball up in a perfectly straight line.
Yes, the ball traveling in an arc is like the loopy pinoy stroke - obviously no stopping anywhere. As for the ball going straight up and down... my instinct is there's never actually a moment when it isn't moving. I'd be happy to be proved wrong in order to learn the truth.
