    I watch you all the time and agree totally in your pitching philosophy.I do:however disagree about the rise ball.I have taught many pitchers in my 18 years of instruction.I agree drop balls are a must but a rise ball adds another dimension to a pitchers arsenal.In addition, it is not a necessity to throw high speed to have an effective rise ball.
    I love the pitch .f.The ability to throw up and down in my estimation is very important.
