Pitch decisions

So I've decided I want to pitch for my team and I've just realized something: I pitch side arm!! My catcher tells me my ball moves and my coaches have told me that my arm is never in the same spot two times in a row. So I can already screw with batters. Thanks to the side arm it can set up slider, which i can get to go corner to corner at home. What other pitches are there for a side arm pitcher to learn?? I have realized that curveball is out of the question, because I would have to raise arm and that would be a dead give away..... Any other pitches that can help a side arm slinger out??

don't throw Sliders..... It will tear your arm off.

Master the Knuckle ball... It's deadly when it's sidearm. I throw a sidearm Knuckler

Hi IronManRipken,

I would recommend some type of slower speed pitch to complement your current pitches. Ideally, you would want to try some type of changeup. The slightly slower speed should make your other pitches look faster and give you one more way to confuse the batters.

Hope this helps,

How do side armers throw knuckle balls, sliders, curve, and change ups? IS it different or what? Could you use images to show your explanation. Thanks
