the hardest pitch to hit i think is a 0-2 count curveball! either that or a major change up after 2 straight fastballs.

Well he's kind of had it in me ever since i accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly" and replace "dog" with "son".

IMO fastballs are obviously the easiest...if pitcher grooves me one the first pitch of the at bat i make them pay for it....curveballs are easy to hit if you stay back and dont always try to pull them...the hardest pitch IMO is the changeup...when a pithcer pitches a curve the arm motion is different...but with a changeup, the pitchers arm motion is the same as when he pitches a fastball...also in high school baseball if you face a pitcher with a good splitter, you better not swing at anything that looks like its going to be at your thighs b/c its going to fall off the table and into the dirt...

I agree with the 0-2 curve ball, but I have to say the 0-2 change up as well.

i think 1-1 or 2-1 curveball is harder b/c on 0-2 you can expect the junk on 0-2 but on other counts you might be looking for something different...

I fear the 3-2 count because you have to swing at anything close but you don't want to swing at anything stupid. You also don't want to go down looking either so it's hard.
