arm speed

do you throw your curveballs with the same armspeed as your fastball or do you tone it down just a little for better accuracy and break? what do all you guys do?

I don’t pitch - I coach. But what I teach is same arm speed as the fastball. Keep the pitch looking like a fastball out of the hand instead of letting it elevate and you’ll gain deception.

I equate slowing things down to increase your accuracy with not trusting yourself. Slowing things down can also mess up your timing.
