people say he never did but my cousin has a giant poster on nolan ryan and if you look at the grip he has on the ball he’s gripping a knuckleball. So I can guarantee he threw at least one so my second favorite person who threw a knuckleball is …Wade Boggs

Just
Shoot
Me

with what .44,8 gauge,.22,9mm you name it

An 8 gauge? Atta boy.

actually 14.5mm. 7.62 would also work

actually anything would work. Its a gun!!! :smiley:

So guys are going all time

4 seam fastball - Nolan Ryan
2 seam fastball - Maddux
curveball - Greg olsen ( greatest ever simply unhittalbe )
slider - Dave Stieb … It actually looked like it stopped and hung a left
knuckleball - Hough / Neikro
knucklecurve - Mussina
forkball - Dave Stewart
splitter - The inventer Mike Scott
cutter - Rivera - when you know its coming and still nope
palmball - Alejandro Pena
changeup - Pedro Martienez / Maddux
sinker - Derek lowe ( there is a difference between the sinker / 2 seam )

4 seam fastball-beckett or burnett
2 seam fastball-pedro or maddux
curveball-beckett
slider-lidge or liriano or santana
knuckleball-wakefield
knucklecurve- A.J. BURNETT.
forkball-contrares
splitter-clemens or smoltz
cutter-rivera
changeup-maddux or santana
sinker-webb
power curve-myers

i dont know how you forgot burnett for the knucklecurve. he has hands down the best. mussinas is more well known but damn cmon pay attention. p.s. lirianos slider is raw too probably the best around when hes healthy

slider- lidge/webb
knuckleball- wakefield

4 seam fastball -Nolan Ryan
2 seam fastball-Ryan/Clemmons/Beckett
curveball- I like Becketts and I thought Nolan Ryan could heave Uncle Charlie to freeze folks like no other…
slider-STEVE CARLTON/Bob Gibson you young guys ain’t seen a slider…(Ask Gates Brown :smiley: :shock: )
knuckleball- Hoyt Wilhelm or Wilber Wood or Niekro…I think to be the tops of that club you have to have more than 200 wins and 20 years in the book
knucklecurve- Burt Hooten/Pedro…reverse the two because Pedro has won more(Pedro’s curve is also called a"spike" but it’s a knuckle curve technically)
forkball- hummmmm Dave Stewart? He sure was evil. Best mound prescence ever.
splitter-Roger Clemmons I don’t care who you are, you’re not hitting this pitch when he’s on, even now.
cutter- Rivera…I don’t think anyone ever will throw it better…maybe as good, some time in the future
changeup- Trevor Hoffman/Greg Maddux
sinker- Zambrano (Carlos)/Greg Maddux (This is his signature pitch…groundball Greg)/Webb
