Alternate curveball grip (Josh Beckett)

Josh Beckett’s got one of the best 12-6 curveballs in baseball. Anyone notice his grip on it. Does anyone else use this grip?

Yea its a begginer curve

Found a pic of Eric Gagne using the same grip.

That’s just a normal curveball grip. The curve is thrown with pressure from the middle finger and the thumb so some guys just get the other finger out of the way. Other guys may keep that finger on the ball, but there is no difference in how the curve is thrown.

I believe Kenny Rogers also use that grip to throw a curve. Man I hate that grip. I have no control over it, lol. I have a pretty good curve with out it however. I wonder, if I spent time with that curveball, would my normal grip sink even more…hummm.
