When people are just throwing the baseball around (not taking a crow hop to build momentum or anything,) what makes one person able to throw farther than another?

It’s mostly about how fast the person is moving and also the mechanics involved. It’s the same with increasing velocity. The faster you throw, the farther you should throw.

Here is an article I wrote called, Why Some Pitchers Throw Harder than Other? It will talk about the mechanics and athletism that separates pitchers but when talking velocity and distance you can not forget the other main factor which is trajectory. Trajectory along with the forces of nature can make up for less velocity on a throw. The other important thing to remember is throwing extreme distances will change a pitchers mechanics from what he uses on the mound to pitch.
