How to Pitch a Baseball : Types of Baseball Pitches


Hi! My name is Mike Lumley. On behalf of Expert
Village, I’m here to teach you pitching. The next thing we’re going to talk about today
is now we’re going to walk you through the breaking ball. Why we call it a breaking ball
instead of a curve ball, slider, slurve, in all reality the breaking ball is conducive
to how you throw or your arm slot. If you’re a over the top pitcher straight over the top,
you’re not really a slider pitcher. You can get a cut fastball or whatever, but really
in all essence you’re a curve ball pitcher. If you’re more out here, high 3 quarter, you’re
going to be into a slurve ball guy. If you’re a low 3 quarter, you’re going to be a slider
guy. When I teach the kids and we go through stuff, we’re really talking about a breaking
ball and not really trying to take an over hand guy and try to teach him a slider. That’s
really going to change his arm slot. As you move up higher, arm slots, good hitters. As
we go up, the good college guys, A, AA, AAA, start to recognize different things in pitchers.
If there’s a tendency to change from a fastball. A guy may throw up here to know all of a sudden,
the breaking ball that changes 6 inches in his arm angle. Good hitters are going to pick
that up.

  3. Throwing a breaking ball is easy. Mastering it is hard. It's not about the grip. It's about your arm slot and they way you "roll" the ball off your fingers.
