          Why didn’t you put in Tim Wakefield for the knuckleball he was nasty

              If I’m correct, forkballs have no spin and knuckleballs have an extremely slight amount, so wouldn’t a forkball be harder to throw?

                      Huge difference between a 2 seam and a splitter.

                        Knucklball is the easiest to throw

                          Forkball is not a hard pitch to throw lol if anything the screwball should be #2 or even 1

                            Fernandez threw his life away. Why is that not on the list?

                              I had an easier time throwing a forkball than ever did a curve or slider. When I got 2 strikes on a hitter, everyone knew it was coming and no one hit it.

                                    For me being 12, I throw a pretty good Knuckleball and a mediocre curveball.

                                            I think the screwball is harder to throw.

                                                Splitter is one of the hardest pitches to throw

                                                  Something I noticed but why did both the catchers move their glove to like an underhand when catching a Forkball? Is that normal?

                                                    I think it’s because of the crazy movement. It kinda fools the catcher a bit, I don’t think that’s on purpose.

                                                    2 seam fastballs curve balls and changeups are easy to throw

                                                      Curves are harder to throw than a change imo

                                                        I can Curveball but I can't changeup for shit.

                                                        +Echo Zero Depends on the grip and movement you're trying to get out of the ball. The Scherzer-esque changes that dive hard down and away from lefties only move that much because he's mastered the use of a difficult combination between grip and armslot.

                                                        Parker Crossland nah all you gotta do to mimic the arm speed is let the ball roll out of ur hand. Some people overthink it but for me at least it’s way easier to throw a change up

                                                        This is correct unless you want to mimic the arm speed of a fastball whilst throwing the change, which is what the pros do.

Doesn’t work all the time as if you throw it too hard you lose downward depth, and it becomes a 2 seam fastball. Pedro Martinez threw a variation screwball changeup, as he turned his wrist over upon release, very damaging pitch regardless to the ulnar collateral ligament
