At one time the curveball was illegal in professional baseball. It was thought to be an “ungentlemanly attempt to deceive the batter.” That rule was changed in the 19th century, but over the years many different types of pitches and deliveries have been scrutinized, criticized, and prohibited.

The most famous of those is the spitball.
