it drops there because when you throw a slow ball it will dorp there too.also when you throw a curve,you put top spin on it and a curve is slow too and if you want to hit it you are goin to have to watch it all the way and then hit.

well being a softball pitcher myself, I throw 6 different pitches. There is the fastball, change-up, drop-ball, rise-ball, curve-ball, and screw-ball. There are also variations of each pitch, inside outside, high low. I throw a backdoor curve ball where instead of ending up on the outside of the plate to a right handed batter, it ends up on the inside. I do the same with my screwball.

Yellow Hammer is a term for a curve ball that not only breaks but has a big drop to it. Another term for Yellow Hammer is a '12 to 6' curve ball. Other terms for a curve ball are 'yakker' and 'Uncle Charlie'.

"Choke" the ball (wedge it down between your thumb and forefinger), and tilt your wrist to the left; the ball snaps down and to the right on release. The resulting pitch should drop and curve to the left. Experiment with different speeds and spins. The best method of a curve ball is to learn to throw it curved upward. Instant strike every time, guaranteed.
