You are a Knuckleballer.
Strong and steady, your style of pitching is known throughout the majors for being unpredictable, yet managers keep you in the game with confidence. While batters might have a hard time making contact with a ball that seems to flutter and dance before their eyes, your slow pitches ensure career longevity. You've found what you're best at and you don't have the desire to change it — why mess with a good thing?
Famous knuckleballers include R.A. Dickey, brothers Phil and Joe Niekro, and Charlie Hough.
Now that you know you're a knuckleballer, it's time to place an order for your favorite mild, boneless wings!
You are a Submariner.
Even though your style of pitching seems impossibly complicated (Will the ball hit the dirt before it sees the plate?) and even contortionist (Will the force of the throw cause you to faceplant?), its upside down release is quite effective at striking out batter after batter. Although you most likely had to step out of your comfort zone to learn this pitch, once you mastered it, it's been your reliable go-to throughout your career.
Famous submariners include Kent Tekulve, Gene Garber, Carl Mays, and Ted Abernathy.
Now that you know you're a submariner, it's time to place your order for your favorite medium grilled wings!
You are a Sidewinder.
Fans might think you're about to throw a frisbee, but no, that sideways wind-up is just how sidewinders roll. Less common in American baseball, sidewinder (or sidearm) pitchers are more popular in Japan. Although your unusual pitch rotation makes your delivery a little slower, the movement of the ball makes it harder to hit. You aren't afraid to be different, and are ready to do whatever it takes to get the job done.
Famous sidewinders include Satchel Paige, Don Drysdale, Dizzy Dean, and Walter Johnson.
Now that you know you're a sidewinder, it's time to place your order for your favorite spicy cauliflower wings!
You are a Flamethrower.
Your hard-throwing, fast-delivered pitches are extremely hard to hit. You live life in the fast lane, and aren't afraid of a little shock and awe. Sometimes delivering pitches with speeds up to 100 mph, you're out to dominate the field and to send batters back to the dugout as quickly as possible. You like a little spice on and off the field and are likely the life of the party wherever you are.
Famous flamethrowers include Alrodis Chapman, Nolan Ryan, Bob Gibson, and Bob Feller.
Now that you know you're a flamethrower, it's time to place your order for your favorite extra hot traditional wings!
