Best Answer

A Baseball is at its fastest immediately upon leaving the pitcher's hand. After that there is no way to increase the acceleration of the ball, yet it is subject to deceleration from air resistance and gravity.

To be fair, a baseball thrown at 90mph will reach the batter in less than half a second, so the effects of air resistance and gravity are minimal.
