No. The slider is usually slower and an earlier break while the cut fasterball has the speed of a fastball but slightly breaks at the end.
A slider is a pitch in baseball that breaks laterally and down. It is not thrown at the velocity that a fastball is thrown at, but its velocity is faster than a curve ball. The break on a slider is not as big as a curve ball. The slider is similar to a cut fastball, but will break more than a cut fastball.
cut means same thing
90-93 mph 4 Seam Fastball 88-91 mph Cut Fastball 78-81 mph Curveball 76-79 mph Circle Change
I AM WONDERING THE SAME THING!
Generally speaking, there are four types of pitches.For a Right Handed pitcherThe Slider (moves from right to left)The Screwball (moves from left to right)The Riser (moves in an upward motion)The Drop (moves in a downward motion)For a Left Handed pitcherThe Slider (moves from left to right)The Screwball (moves from right to left)The Riser (moves in an upward motion)The Drop (moves in a downward motion)Skilled pitchers will variate their grips and arm anglers to create pitches such as Drop-Curves, Rising-Sliders, and the like. In order to throw these pitches, experienced pitchers will sand, scuff, or cut the ball to get the correct movement.
would love to know the same thing.
Same thing we do, to cut clothe, paper, hair, etc.
The pitch that made Mariano Rivera famous is the sharp breaking, cut fastball. It is known as a cutter.
Same things you would to to any cut on your skin. Keep it extremely clean. Next thing is to see you OB/GYN.
I was wondering the exact same thing.
