Types of Pitches

Changeup – CH | is one of the slowest pitches thrown in softball, and it is predicated on deception.

Curveball – CU | is a breaking pitch that has more movement than just about any other pitch. It is thrown slower and with more overall break than a slider, and it is used to keep hitters off-balance.

Drop | The drop pitch will sink as it approaches the batter and it will produce groundball outs.

Fastball – FA | is almost always the fastest and straightest pitch a pitcher throws.

Rise | a rise ball is a type of pitch that is thrown on an upward trajectory and with backspin in order to impart a rising motion

Screwball – SC | a breaking ball designed to move in the opposite direction of just about every other breaking pitch.
