What Pitch?

Postby Rico The Retard » Thu Jan 06, 2005 12:12 pm

OK I was just really bored and i thought of this, If you were a major league pitcher and you could only have one pitch but you had excellent location, what pitch would it be?

Fastball
Changeup
Curveball
Slider
Knuckleball
Screwball

Some pitchers do this and they are called knuckleballers...therefore I chose knuckleball...it always messes everyone up...1 pitch wonder Tim Wakefield has done a great job with it so I choose the jiggly ball

Back in highschool when I played on travel teams I would occasionally pitch...The knuckleball was one of my best pitches and it always screwed everyone up.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I think that if your only pitch was a changeup you would be in a lot of trouble. :-b

Also it wouldn't be a changeup because there would be nothing to compare it to.

If you could maintain excellent location, then the knuckleball. Unfortunately, that's the beauty of a knuckleball. There is no location. Even the pitcher does not know where a good knuckleball is going once he lets go.

Since that basically eliminates the knuckleball, I'll take the big bending curveball. ;-D

I picked the screwball. It's kind of a 2 seam fastball I guess, but if you could locate that thing every time, man that'd be awesome.

IK also didin't pick knuckleball because it's impossible to control. But if you COULD control it, it would be by far the best single pitch to have.
