    on its way

    Hi everybody!

    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.

    Hi sonyet


    • ..., you would have at least known the pitch was on its way.

    its = pitch / the pitch's way

    on its way = is coming
