Drop a ball from a 20-foot ladder and have me try to hit it, going straight down. Even for the best hitters in the world, that's gonna be tough to do. Now give me a 100-mph fastball -- straight, in the zone -- I'll hit it every time. I may not get a hit, but I'm gonna hit it. But if you do it the other way, that's what a curveball does. A good curveball with a lot of break, it's not necessarily that I don't recognize it, but it's moving so much that it's tougher to square up.

Comparing a batter's perspective to the fastball and the curve
