i was told alot by coaches, catchers, and teams i go against (i do like to ask about my pitching to other teams) that i have a heavy fastball. my catcher says my fastball has a solid pounding when it hits his glove. some hitters say they can get all on the ball and not take it very far.
my questions are …
1 is a heavy fastball more effective than a blazing fastball
2 is that normal?
our league uses major league baseballs which are lighter than some other leagues i play in so i figure the weight of the ball has nothing to do with it.
