I was brought up throwing over the top as most pitchers are, i was a young “giant” to say the least and my body allowed me to throw hard, Junior year in high school i found a fellow teamate throwing side-arm and i decided to take it up, i am just about to finish my senior year. My predicament was i was throwing maybe 82-86 over the top (guestimate and im not kissing my own ass on speed) and i was throwing maybe 78-81 from the side with some sink, so i decided to go 3/4 maybe a little lower… (still keeping the tail and sink, not as much though)
Anyways now that i am done with the story lol i have a question about my arm slot.
Im working around with 3 different split-finger fastballs (my favorite pitch… im 6’3 with very large hands for my size)
i throw a 2 seem which has the natural sink
I throw a change-up with same arm speed, and a little sink
can anyone make any suggestions on sliders what not… i was throwing a regular “C” slider, one inside the close seems, and lastly an attempted knuckle curve (slider attempt)… anyone offer some tips on the pitches to maybe get more break, or some split, or other pitch advice to get some more.
Thanks again, donno why i told my random story about myself, thanks.
