4 Seam Fast Ball - Mid to high 70s
2 Seam Fast Ball - Mid to high 70s
Three-fingered Changeup - Mid to high 60s
Curveball - High 60s to low 70s
Slurve - Low 70s
On left handed batters, I like to use the 4 Seamer on the inside part of the plate while I let the 2 Seam fall off of the outer half.
On right handed batters, I use the 4 Seamer on the outside part of the plate while I back them off with a 2 Seamer.
With a Changeup, I always use it on the outside part of the plate away from right handed and left handed batters.
With a Curveball on a right handed batter, I like to let it fall in on the right handed part of the plate on the corner or let it fall off of the left side of the plate.
With a Curveball for a left handed batter, I let it either sneak in the back door or make it curve down and into their bodies to try and lock them up.
And a Slurve is similar to what I just described with the Curveball only I try to throw it a little lower in the zone otherwise it would be served to the batter on an easy-to-smash horizontal plane.
I do my best to place the ball since obviously I don't have the speed to blow it past them XD
