As in baseball, life can throw different pitches at you. When life is good, it is a fastball, knee high, and right over the plate. Then there are times when life throws a barrage of pitches. You might get thrown a curve ball, a pitch thrown with a downward spin causing the ball to drop suddenly and veer to the side as it approaches home plate. Maybe it is a slider, a breaking ball pitch that tails laterally and down through the batters strike zone, it is thrown with less speed than a fastball but greater than the pitcher’s curve ball. You also have the sinker pitch, a fastball which has significant downward and horizontal movement, and is known for inducing ground balls as it rides low over home plate. We can’t forget about the knuckle ball, a slow pitch that has virtually no spin and moves erratically, a pitch typically shaky from the start, but it has a way of finding the plate. And “ONE OF THE MOST EXERCISED PITCHES OF ALL TIME,” especially concerning the Black male and female of America, “THE PITCH OUT,” a pitch that was intentionally thrown high and outside of the batters hitting zone, for it was never meant to reach home plate.
“Unequal weights and unequal measures are both an abomination to the Lord.”
