    Default Do different pitches sound different?

    DD2, still a relatively new pitcher, started working on her two-seam fastball recently. I am used to the sound I hear often with her regular fastball. This morning her two-seam sounded different. Does that make sense? Do other pitches sound different as well?

    2 seam just depends how you catch it.

    Drop ball sounds like "Oh god my shin"

    I only remember 1 girl throwing gas in OKC and I've never at any age heard a ball make the noise it was making. The old ump behind the plate for over 20+ years said the same thing.

    If you put your ear close to a fastball you can totally hear the wiz when it flies by. Screwballs and changeups sound the same like a race car. Risers have whistle sound. Drops are really weird. Those sound more like a orange. Speaking of which, if you spell O-R-A-N-G-E it sounds like "gullible"
    I got your softballs

    A sound I've never heard a softball make. I'm guess her rotation was off the charts combined with an equally impressive speed causing a audible frequency or resonance almost pulsating through the air. By the time she was done 20 people were on the fence just taking it all in.

    When I was hitting strike 3 always sounded like a bunch of 4 letter words..
