What makes the slider a good baseball pitch?

The slider is a good pitch to have as the batter sees the ball as a fastball but at the last moment the slider drops in front of home plate. Most batters can spot a curve ball by its spin or the pitching motion of the pitcher. The slider looks exactly like a fastball due to its speed and spin. A slider is thrown by grasping the ball with the index finger and middle finger not in the center of the ball, but off a bit to the right.
