My power alley is to right-center. I've hit a few dingers in my day, but I'm mostly a line drive base hit up the middle kind of a hitter.
If you pitch, what type of pitcher are you... Power? Ground ball, Fly ball, Knuckleball?
when I've pitched, I mixed it up a lot. got a good curve and slider - makes the fast ball look a little faster.
