What's the best pitch in baseball?

In your opinion, what is the best pitch to throw in baseball?

The one they’re not expecting.


change up. breaking balls are over rated, even though lots of high schoolers have trouble with them. but get to college and a pretty little curveball will get you no where, unless you’re Kershaw quality:) change ups resembles fastball, then drops off with about 4-8 mph less velo, and nothing beats a guy who can get ground ball after ground ball with a filthy change

a fastball near the bottom of the zone with sink

Most effective: A good ground out

Strikeout: Great unexpected fastball
