In baseball, a pitch is the act of throwing a baseball toward home plate to start a play. The term comes from the Knickerbocker Rules. Originally, the ball had to be literally "pitched" underhand, as with pitching horseshoes. Overhand throwing was not allowed until 1884. The biomechanics of pitching have been studied extensively. The phases of throwing include windup, early cocking, late cocking, early acceleration, late acceleration, deceleration, and follow-through.

  • In baseball, a pitch is the act of throwing a baseball toward home plate to start a play. The term comes from the Knickerbocker Rules. Originally, the ball had to be literally "pitched" underhand, as with pitching horseshoes. Overhand throwing was not allowed until 1884. The biomechanics of pitching have been studied extensively. The phases of throwing include windup, early cocking, late cocking, early acceleration, late acceleration, deceleration, and follow-through. Pitchers throw a variety of pitches, each of which has a slightly different velocity, trajectory, movement, hand position, wrist position and/or arm angle. These variations are introduced to confuse the batter in various ways, and ultimately aid the defensive team in getting the batter or baserunners out. To obtain variety, and therefore enhance defensive baseball strategy, the pitcher manipulates the grip on the ball at the point of release. Variations in the grip cause the seams to "catch" the air differently, thereby changing the trajectory of the ball, making it harder for the batter to hit. The selection of which pitch to use can depend on a wide variety of factors including the type of hitter who is being faced; whether there are any base runners; how many outs have been made in the inning; and the current score.

  • En béisbol, el lanzamiento es la acción que realiza el pitcher para enviar la bola hacia el plato para ser recibida por el receptor, mientras el bateador intenta golpear la misma hacia el terreno de juego en Anexo:Glosario de béisbol zona fair. Existen varios tipos de lanzamiento que realizan los lanzadores los cuales presentan diversas características de velocidad, movimiento, trayectoria y, de acuerdo a la manera como son efectuados, por la posición de la mano, la muñeca o el brazo. Dichas variaciones se utilizan para confundir al bateador de distintas maneras y, en última instancia, sacar al bateador o hacerlo out. Para lograr la mencionada variación del lanzamiento se puede recurrir además al tipo de agarre que se le haga a la costura de la bola. (es)
