What happens when a pitcher loses his best pitch

MLB JERSEYS
No matter the age, experience or past success, for lefties and righties alike, losing the feel of the baseball -- especially on one's best pitch -- is maddening. It can happen at any time, in the bullpen before a game, in the first inning or even midway through a start. Fortunately, many times, pitchers find "it" again and can continue.
