okget the knuckle curve gripthen throw it like a sliderit works greatsomebody else might have discovered this
it has randy johnsonlike break
Zita had a huge post on this pitch. He said it was called the "slip" pitch. It wasn't too long ago either just the other day.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure he's actually taking this info outta zita's post and pretending he made it up himself. Though I doubt he'd even read something that long with great grammar, spelling, and punctuation
So somebody else has discovered the "slip" pitch, eh? Good. I'm glad to see that experimentation is alive and well here. As for this pitch, I learned it a long time ago from my pitching coach---Ed Lopat, who was always adding another pitch to his ever-expanding collection. Oh, by the way, Bower, I happen to be a female of the species---but I wouldn't mind if you called me a two-headed green Martian! I've long suspected I might be... 8)
You said the slip pitch was thrown with a knuckleball grip and the knuckle slider is thrown with a knuckle curve grip. So I know it is not a new idea but different from the "slip" you posted.
Hey, hoysauce, hold on a minute! :lol: What I said was that the slip pitch is a slider thrown with a knuckleball grip. The fellow who's using a knuckle-curve grip is just throwing a variation of the pitch, and I used that too. Ed Lopat had just told me to get a knuckleball grip, and as you know there are several different ones, all of which I played around with and used with good results. In any event, it's a nifty pitch, and you should see what happens to the hitters when they try to get a piece of it!
Wait you are actually Zita Carno. Like when you put it into google?
I googled your name when you first joined and I figured if I had to I'd rather mistake you as a guy than mistake you as a girl becuase a site of mostly guys I figured if you were a guy I wouldn't want to call you a girl, and if I called you a guy it wouldn't be that big of a mistake.
I discovered that a while ago, like a year and a half ago, it's not that hard to discover though, it's just throwing your knucklecurve like a slider, haha.
the knuckle curve is a curveball gripnot the other k curve with both mid and index fingers bent
just like you would throw a slider with a regular curve grip(carlton, johnson) throw it with the k curve/spike curve grip

Though I doubt he'd even read something that long with great grammar, spelling, and punctuation[quote] lil harsh wouldnt you say? to say that he musta read zitas post and ripped it off. as if nobody could ever mess around with a baseball grip and discovered this pitch on there own with no help. give me a break u know how many people have probly tried to throw this pitch messing around in there back yard? or any other pitch you all have "discovered" every pitch ever posted in this forum has been thrown before any of us were born. how long has baseball been played? and you tellin me now all of assuden its the new wave of pitched nobodys ever thrown, gime a break.
before your comeback is i dono how to use bbc code
1 i wasn't even on here when zita made that post cause i cant find it
2 i found this pitch while messing with the slip pitch
3 i respect zita, unlike you, and i wouldn't do that
4 what would i accomplish by doing that
I don't respect Zita? and when have I ever copied anything Zita has said? Again, the lack of facts to back up anything you say is ridiculous. It's been right around this thread. It looks a little akward when you come saying you've invented a new pitch right after a thread has been made talking about it.
Sorry I thought you said get a knuckleball grip and throw it like a slider. I didn't see the knucklecurve grip. I was going to say that Zita posted the slip pitch in your topic.
I just misread Knucklecurve and Knuckleball.
i was saying i dont respect you buuuurn
well i found out that you can throw a slider with the k-curve gripif it has already been posted sorry
seems that you are the only one that has a problem with it
did you mean this post
differencehold it like a k-curve and roll your wrist
Ugh, you're the kid that gets bullied at school on a regular basis? I'm guessing with the "duhs" and "buuurns". Atleast thats how it goes up here.
uuuuuuuuuhyoure getting off topicand anyway nope
1 burn if you dont know simple stuff i'll say duh
get back on topic
you know i was gana give you benefit of the doubt on the post you made about him not knowing anything about what he posts. I figured with all the people who post and dont know nothin bout what there talkin about. but seriously......this is your comeback? arnt you a college pitcher? maybe im thinkin about another poster but anyone who bullies people on a regular basis is a loser to begin with so that post didnt really help your cause.
Wait hold on, you didn't see Zita's post but you still know how to throw the slip pitch she is talking about? I have looked all over the internet and that is the only somewhat "how to" post on the slip pitch that I can find.
