    Pitching Arsenal

    I currently throw a Four-Seam Fastball, Sinker, Cutter & Circle-Change Up. Does this sound like a good pitching arsenal?

    A couple of questions, how old are you, and do you have good command of your fastball (do you hit your spots)?

    At what level are you pitching. That will help in responses.

    There are many two seam and four seam varieties. Throw all of them.

    If you do have good command of your fastball, you have more than enough pitches.

    Yes, at any level.

    You better be throwing in the mid to upper 90s then. Otherwise, even high schoolers hammer diets of straight fastballs.

    This is not the case. You can throw mid 80's, and be very effective with 2 or 3 pitches. It's all about location and keeping hitters off balance.
