Most of the time in baseball when players start to take steroids it is normally given to them by there team trainer.

Lastly, the pitcher must have different types of throws to strike the batter out. Some pitches are called knuckle, curve, change-up, and fastball. The objective of a knuckle is to keep the ball still with no movement. The curve is a pitch that is hard to hit because it curves down right when it gets to the plate. Third a change-up is thrown when you try to keep the batter off guard; it is usually thrown when holding it with your palm.
What does a championship winning baseball team look like? Are they the hulking, barrel-chested cousins of Paul Bunyan? The answer is rarely. The game of baseball has evolved from teams with the most homeruns always being the victors, to teams with smaller and faster players playing David to the league’s Goliaths.

My dad signed me up for softball when I was only about seven or eight years old. I had watched the women’s college softball world series and Arizona State University took the title. It was the most exciting thing I had ever seen and I decided that I wanted to be just like those girls when I grew up.

The pitcher must have the confidence and skills to throw the various types of throws in order to strike a batter out. In some cases the pitcher is also an infielder because if the ball is hit in his region of the field, the pitcher has to act fast to catcher a pop fly or ground the ball and throw the batter out. The pitcher also has to keep a keen eye on the opposing basemen for if they get a far lead off of the base, he can get out of his pitching start stance quickly and throw the basemen out. The Catcher must be very quick with their movements and be ready to throw the ball to their infielders to tag an opposing team member if he is caught trying to steal the next base. Bases can be stolen and runs can be scored if mistakes are made.
