New Ball

New Ball

I'm sure we've all heard about the MLB changing the balls to reduce homer number, but this season we've seen a drastic change as through just a fourth of the season we have 6 no hitters, the record is 7.

I want to hear some opinions, is this good? bad? what do you all think.

Personally, I like it! I'm a pitcher and I love seeing two pitchers battling it out. I think that maybe this is rediculous, but I also think the ball may not be the reason for this. I did some research on the 6 pitchers who have thrown no hitters, none of them have an average fastball velocity above 95. Maybe this means that the game is changing?

Sounds like superior training pays off again! That and ye olde luck for the pitchers
