There have been plenty of pitchers who have dominated hitters throughout the history of baseball.
Many of the game's greats, such as Juan Marichal, Warren Spahn and of course Cy Young, mastered several pitches during their careers that helped them pitch their way to long, successful careers that eventually led to induction into the Hall of Fame.
Other pitchers, such as Nolan Ryan, Mariano Rivera and Walter Johnson, relied largely on a singular dominant pitch to intimidate and dominate their opposition.
There are a few exceptions, as always seems to be the case, in which a pitcher wound up mastering a second pitch nearly as lethal as his first.
Here are some of the game's all-time greats and a few of today's stars who knew how to hurl the ball past their opponents.
