I'm reading a book and I can't understand the following sentence:
The crowd erupted as though watching a World Series winning home run – except there, you would have at least known the pitch was on its way.
What does *on its way* mean? Whom does *its* refer?
Thanks in advance.
- ..., you would have at least known the pitch was on its way.
its = pitch / the pitch's way
on its way = is coming
