If you’re a baseball player, have you ever wondered how to improve games with different pitches?.Do you like playing or watching baseball? As baseball seasons come and go you will see pitchers throw balls swerving and curving and you can always get better at baseball like knowing how to throw different pitches or know how to identify a pitch. Every best pitcher knows to throw different pitches and most of the best batters sometimes know what pitch is being thrown.
If you can see which pitch is which you will also be an amazing batter to because you could learn which pitch the pitcher is throwing. Firstly as a batter you can look at the ball to see the speed of the ball, you can look for where the ball is moving towards, look for if the ball breaks (if the ball shifts in another direction) look for the angle the pitcher’s arm, you can look for the grip the pitcher is holding and also look for the rotation of the ball.
Lastly, in the article http://mentalfloss.com, when the pitcher uses the pitches firstly it is the four-seam fastball is the most important pitch because that’s what other pitchers build off because they need to time it then you can throw the hitter off by throwing another pitch. Now we have the changeup the is used when you think the hitter has the time of your fastball you just throw a changeup to throw off their time because it is slower than the fastball. Thirdly is the curveball is used to make the hitter think the pitch is at their head then it curves down to the strike zone. Lastly, there is the knuckleball not many pitchers throw this pitch because the knuckleball is the hardest pitch and it is hard for the catcher to catch the ball because it can go anywhere.
