Tim Collins Statistics and History -


Henry Knight, a high school switch pitcher, throws the circle change from both sides. He throws the changeup hard away or low inside using fastball arm speed. The pitch looks like a fastball to the batter, but it moves 10 mph slower and has a late drop – so it throws off a batter's timing.
