I thought announcer last night referenced a 12-6 pitch that Mcune has, I could be wrong.

re: How fast was Nate Fury throwing last night?


a 12-6 pitch is exactly what it sound like. A pitch that drops directly down. Adam Wainwright might have one of the best knuckle curves in baseball. Pitch goes upward out of the hand and has tight spin that brings the ball straight back down. Mike Mussina had a hell of a knuckle cruve that broke straight down.

Not all curveballs are the same it depends on the release. Some are thrown slightly off the side which is going to cause spin that is slightly off center and the ball will break low and to the opposite side of the pitcher's arm side. This is more of a slurve.

Other pitches can break downward, but a "true" 12-6 breaking ball is one that has tumbling over-the-top spin. If it breaks off to the side, it has been released on the side as opposed to directly over the top.

A true 12-6 is a tough pitch to throw. Must have perfect grip and mechanics to keep it from sliding

Edit. Didnt see your second post 86. All of that lol

All these numbers being thrown around are referring to the plane on which the ball breaks on a hypothetical clock. A cutter from a right handed pitcher is going to break side to side away from the pitcher's arm side. Meaning a right handed pitcher that throws this pitch will have a break on it that breaks away from a right handed hitter. A lot of times they will start this pitch inside on a right handed hitter and it will cut towards the inside corner in the hope that it will come all the way back to the strike zone. hence the 3-9. Start out from a right handed pitcher at 3 and work straight across to 9.

Mariano Rivera has the best cutter in the history of baseball.

When you think 12-6, think Barry Zito. All other 12-6 curveballs wanna be like Zitos when they grow up.

I always thought of bertucinni throwing a slurve, not a 12-6
