… The Art Of Pitching : 13.7: Cosmos And Culture : NPR. ((Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

… It'd be easy to pitch the ball so that no batter can hit it. Just throw the ball away from the batter. But that's not allowed. You have to throw the ball to the batter so that he can have an honest chance of hitting it. You have to throw it so that it is, in some ideal sense, hittable. But then your job, as a pitcher, is to make sure that he doesn't hit it.
