Keywords

Baseball Pitch
A specific type of throw used by a pitcher in baseball, each with its own unique trajectory, speed, and movement. Common pitches include fastball, changeup, curveball, slider, sinker, and knuckleball. The type of pitch used can significantly impact the outcome of a batter's swing and the overall game.

Fastball
A baseball pitch thrown with a straight trajectory and high speed, typically the most common pitch used by pitchers. The fastball is designed to challenge the batter's reaction time and ability to hit the ball.

Changeup
A baseball pitch thrown with a slower speed than the fastball, often with a similar trajectory. The changeup is designed to deceive the batter, making them anticipate a fastball and swing too early.

Curveball
A baseball pitch thrown with a breaking trajectory, curving in a downward direction. The curveball is designed to confuse the batter, making them swing at a pitch that is not in their hitting zone.

Slider
A baseball pitch thrown with a breaking trajectory, curving in a horizontal direction. The slider is designed to break the batter's timing and make them swing at a pitch that is not in their hitting zone.

Sinker
A baseball pitch thrown with a downward trajectory, sinking towards the ground. The sinker is designed to make the ball appear to be moving faster than it actually is, making it difficult for the batter to hit.

Knuckleball
A baseball pitch thrown with minimal spin, resulting in an unpredictable trajectory. The knuckleball is designed to confuse the batter, making them unable to predict where the ball will go.
