Yes, but unless you can convince the scout you're the next Greg Maddox (LOL), he's probably not going to pay attention to you unless you have "great stuff", typically meaning a very good fastball.

If you have three out pitches, you have "great stuff". If a hitter cannot predicably anticipate what he's going to get in a given situation, the pitcher has all of the advantages.

If a hitter can "sit on a fast ball," the pitcher is in trouble. A quality MLB hitter can get around on a 98 mph fast ball. How? I have no idea, but they do.
