Ok I know im sprinkling alot of topics, My buddy that pitched AA said if he were to pitch again he'd work perfect the change up more so that any other pitch.
He told me the circle change (the middle and ring finger) i believe now obvly my control is way off on everything but I dont feel like there is much difference in speed. What do you guys think...do you feel that way but the difference is so minor that its hard for new pitcher to have a feel for it? Id almost rather learn a split finger cuz the arm action to actual speed ratio is significant. (but split is more of a 2 strike pitch, wear i feel a change up is more of a 1 strike pitch, i could WAY OFF but just my initial feeling)
Ive got a camera ill work on getting video in the next couple weeks, But im moving in to the dorms and have shit to pack so ill do it when i show up there. Ill also take pitchers of the grips.
When I was a kid (im now 5'9-10"ish 155lbs, so im very small) I always threw the ball with index/middle/ring finger on a 4 seam grip.. It was the only way i could reliably throw with velocity and accuracy. what would you call that?
SO to sum it up, what was the 3 finger pitch i threw? What is the noticable difference in the change up beyond obv? Anything you guys emphusize when you throw fast/change ups? How much difference do you guys have on velocity? what is a range typically?
