it was the first real automn game i had no coaches in dugouts they were playing as home plate umpire 1 base and 3 base. it came out i was the starting pitcher for today, i knew that about 30 minutes before the game started. i ran to the bullpen and started to rush a little ( i was already warmn up doing tosses and stuffs in the infield) i couldnt throw my change up where i wanted and really felt like my curve wasnt bitting. i decided to try some screwballs my father’s friend shown me (he played AA ball for montreal expos.) i really felt like it was working today. so i told my catcher
he was excited, seeing that he never called a game with a guy throwing screwballs, i was more anxious seeing i never threw a screwball in a game.
first batter (righty, im lefty) i threw fastball away for called strike then tried fastball up and in for ball the catcher droipped down the number 3 i felt like a huge rush of adrenaline came up to my ears, so i stepped off the rubber and asked for a new sign, he dropped down the number 3 again i threw it right at the batter he dodged and the ball went straight back to the inside part of the plate for called strike. best feeling i ever had. this game was like friendly in a way so i heared a lot of laughs and cheerings, the batter said what the f_ was that? i threw an other one to the middle of the plate and it curved straight down and away in the dirt for strike 3 swinging. im felt in love with it after that.
i did well going 4 innings (maximum) in a 7 innings game striking out 5 without a base on ball threw 63 pitches and now i never want to pitch like i usually do, i usually just throw change ups all the time i felt like this pitch really gave me an edge. i dont like how it’s known as a arm destroyer though, even though i throw it by pulling down like a curveball should be thrown, the guy that shpwn me how to throw it really knew how to and i’m thinking about going weith this pitch now, i really wonder if thasts something i should do…
