Generally speaking, there are four types of pitches.

For a Right Handed pitcher

The 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 pitcher

The 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.
