Most pither's Curveball's are thrown slower then there fastballs. Usually about 10 mph slower. so if a major league pitcher throws a 95 mph fastball the curveball would be about 85. However there are some pitchers whose curveball's go the same speed as their fastball.

What is the difference between a pitcher's command and a pitcher's control?

Great question. The pitchers command means that his pitches are doing what he wants them to do. If his intent is to throw a curve ball, then the ball will curve. The pitcher has control when the pitches he throws are staying in the strike zone like he wants. If he wants to throw a ball, then he is throwing balls. your curveball can curve, your breaking ball can break, your slider will slide, and your fastball is fast.... however if you can't get it over the plate ( or reasonably within range), you have no control.
