How fast is a fastball pitch?

The speed of a fastball is dependent on the pitcher throwing the pitch. At the major league level, fastball can vary in speed by 15-20mph between different pitchers. The hardest throwers have been credited with speeds exceeding 100mph, but some pitchers can barely reach 90mph. The main difference between a fastball and other pitches is how they are thrown. A fastball is thrown similarly to the natural motion of throwing a ball, allowing the ball to roll off the fingers as it is released, imparting backspin to the ball, which provides a small amount of lift, and reduces air resistance. This lift allows the pitch to have a straighter line to the plate. The more natural motion is the primary reason for the characteristic high speed of the fastball. Curve balls are thrown with the ball rolling off the thumb, with a snap of the wrist, imparting a forward spin, causing the ball to lose lift, resulting in the characteristic "curve" of the curve ball. This motion is very unnatural, and a drop-off in speed is the result.


Who is credited with inventing the split finger fastball and in what year?

A split-finger fastball or splitter is a pitch in baseball and a variant of the straight fastball. It is named after the technique of putting the index and middle finger on different sides of the ball, or "splitting" them. When thrown hard, it appears to be a fastball to the batter, but suddenly "drops off the table" towards home plate

What kind of pitch is a slider?

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.
