    Not to be a troll but this list is slightly subjective, different people can throw different pitches better, like the slurve may be super easy for me but not for someone else.

        I would say that the knuckleball is a lot easier than the screwball. A forty year old knuckleballer is not uncommon.

              I'm pretty sure this guy doesn't know much about baseball. I'm a little league pitcher and I can throw fastball, cutter, slider, and a half-decent knuckle ball with ease.

                Is it bad that I throw Knuckleballs at 10 and still do at 12?

                          Over half the pitches were called a breaking ball by the announcers.

                            Lol a breaking ball is anything other than a fastball.

                                    Everybody who’s saying change-ups are easier to throw than curveballs/sliders have clearly never pitched. At least not at a high level. People need to understand that a change-up is not simply a “slower fastball” it’s gripped very differently and to be effective has to be the same arm action as the fastball to fool the hitter into swinging too early. Simply lobbing the ball up there and calling it a change-up is a good way of getting pulled in the second inning.

                                      It's also a good way to give up 40 homeruns.

                                      Dat Boi I’ll agree that curveballs are easier than change ups but sliders are for some reason so hard for me to learn. Curveballs are real easy though honestly. What type of change up do you throw? I do a circle change

                                    its proven that the change up is actually more common to easily throw than the curveball but ok

                                                        Knuckle ball moves around and breaks more than the forkball

                                                          Curve should be higher because it is hard to throw a good one.

                                                              Slider is much easier to throw than a curve in my opinion

Each pitch has a different way you grip the ball, different velocity, and different trajectory. And names? Everything gets named? You can’t just call everything a “pitch”

                                                                    Knuckleball because you grip it with your knuckles
