Yep, the only reason catcher’s can catch what a pitcher throws is because they know what’s coming but with a kball, no one knows what’s coming.

Con:
Slow Fastball

As to you saying its unhittable that is a total lie if that was so every pitcher who could throw a k-ball would only throw it and the be throwing 20-30 no-nos a year. Just a hole in your logic :smiley:

CON:its a knuckleball

one of the best knuckle ballers in history of baseball is tim wakefield and his W-L record mostly 17-12 every year…which isnt bad but considering hes one of greatest that isnt good for knuckleball pitchers
