Yes I do. It FEELS anti-intuitive, but from many different experience levels in many different sports I believe so yes.

I've seen numerous kids who within a few days were throwing 330-350 forehand (high school kids on the track team I coached are the first examples that come to mind, as I saw their distance relative to the lines on a FB field). But they all required some coaching on at the very least grip and body orientation.
My FH was completely natural from the start unless you consider baseball/qb background.

My BH was the complete opposite, absolutely atrocious when I started.

Yep, the roller part was not intended at first, but played my whole first round throwing big hyzerflip rollers. Had a Whamo starter set with I think was called the "Turn", understable driver. I used to pitch and throw football submarine. It's actually more similar to football because you also need to spin or spiral the football on its axis like a disc. I bet Mahomes and Rogers can absolutely launch a disc with a decent grip.

This has been my grip since first throw. Nobody showed me how to grip. Just feels same as a fastball grip to me.

In Ricky's latest Innova vid, he mentions how being a short stop and throwing over to 1st base transitioned very easily into a strong forehand. Same here, first 5 years of playing I was FH dominant from other sports' backgrounds, and I just imagined doing a sidearm pitch/throw. That said, it was definitely terrible when I started (throwing a Boss really high in the air), but I could see how a natural athlete could take a disc and learn how to make it come out flat throwing it like a baseball on their first day, and get some good distance with it.
