    Literature demonstrates that pitch types (fastball, curveball, change-up, slider) generally have similar kinematics with only minor differences in forearm and wrist action, and even less so in the elbow and shoulder(36-40). Fleisig et al demonstrated in a kinematic study involving 21 collegiate baseball pitchers that the change-up pitch is the least stressful, while the curveball and fastball have similar elbow and shoulder kinetics, with the curveball exhibiting increased forearm supination and radial to ulnar wrist motion(40, 41). The authors concluded that no obvious source of injury could be identified from kinematic comparisons between pitches alone. However, a larger prospective cohort study of young baseball players of average age of…

As we grow up and try our best to succeed in everything we do, it’s inevitable that we run into barriers along the way.

    Is velocity the reason why a curveball drops? Statistics show that the velocity of a ball does not cause the curveball to drop. There are other variables involved like air pressure, rotation of the ball, and aerodynamics. These are very important factors when a baseball is thrown.
