Whats the hardest pitch to throw?

Its it hard trying to throw a curveball,Knuckleball,Splitfinger curveball,Forkball,Screwball or a hard slider? Throwing a fastball i know is pretty simple to do you just fire the thing at the catchers mitt as hard you can throw it.But some trick pitches can damage your wrist,elbow or even your shoulder.

The hardest as far as learning IMO would be the knuckle ball

The hardest as far as on your arm would be the screwball IMO

What's your take?

I tend to agree with you bb. When you consider the tens upon tens of thousands of pitches these guys throw, it is amazing what the human body can accept.

I could never master the knuckleball.
I threw a 2-seam fb, 4-seasom fb, changeup, and a slurve.
I knew how to throw a slider, but it hurt my elbow that's why my coach had me switch to the slurve. It's an easier motion.

These Pitches have to be used to fool the hitters.Thats why i suggested the Mound should be raised cause i learned in the old days when the mound used to be "16 high but now its "11 The arm can take so much how you throw those pitches and where you put the ball in the location.Back in the 50s-60s pitchers have less injuries back then than today.I think the mound should be raised to "14.

probably couldn't hurt any. i, unfortunately, never played organized baseball when i was younger. and when i tried to a few years ago in the local rec league, i got hit in the eye with a ball and had a hemmorage and was shut down from anything for 6 weeks (running jumping, no gym class, etc.). then about a year later i got hit above the same eye and called it quits cause i didn't want to risk getting hit there, or near there, again and losing sight in the eye.

wouldn't have mattered. It was in the field, also at tryouts so we weren't required to wear them at batting cause they were only lobs.
