For you speedsters, did you get any readings on the Queen of Speed....CT?
EP Dad--Starsnuffer is perhaps prone to hyperbole (something I would never do ), but...
During the CWS, the college players were scoring runs like crazy. During the the World Softball Championship, the same kids couldn't score a run against a pitcher who is throwing slower than the girls at CWS. A reasonable person should ask, "Why?"
The answer is that most of the pitchers at the CWS have marginal breaking pitches. So, they get hammered by good hitters. When those same hitters face a pitcher with a real breaking pitch, suddenly they can't hit it.
Daddies routinely brag here and at the ball park that their kid has four breaking pitches when in reality they don't have any. Daddies say, "She knows these pitches, but she can't throw them consistently." <---That means, "She can't throw a breaking pitch." If a pitcher can't get a pitch to break 90% of the time, then it is the same as not having one. It is worthless.
But, Daddies are more into having a bunch of poor breaking pitches than one good breaking pitch.

Every softball parent keeps a hockey mask and a butcher knife in their car...
