I hope this helps.
Sure was creative by that fan!
This is going to sound clunky, so I will apologize in advance.
How do pitchers know how to grip a baseball after getting the sign from the catcher?
I don’t get what you mean. Like they know how to hold the ball for every pitch they throw. They know how it feels and can find the grip while being blindfolded in the dark in the trunk of a car at midnight.
You have a general grip and then you can feel around the seams and get it into the right position. These guys have been throwing these pitches for years and there are only so many ways to grip it so it's not really something that's hard to do.
Like I haven't pitched in 10+ years and I could easily take a baseball and flip it around in my hand and get the grips I would need to throw the pitches that I threw in 2009.
This is going to sound like a dumb question, but what would be a perfect OPS?
Well it would basically be hitting a homerun everytime you had an at bat. The OBP portion of the formula is easy. A perfect on base is 1.000. Slugging % is calculated as follows...
Total Bases ÷ At Bats = SLG
Since a HR = 4 total bases and unless I can't do math (which is possible) the perfect SLG % would be 4.000
Add those together and 5.000 would be the tits as they say.
funny enough, mike trout's OPS is 0.9999
Thank you, Gin.
