Can I master the change-up by doing this?

Instead of throwing fastballs when having a catch, if I were to throw a chang-up every time would this help master the pitch?

depends what you mean by ‘master’

master as in being able to locate the pitch exactly where u want it everytime?

master as in being able to make it 15-20MPH slower than your fastball?

master as in pinpoint control, movement AND speed difference?

The third one (master as in pinpoint control, movement AND speed difference)…I want the change-up to be one of my best pitches if not the best pitch.

my change up is my best pitch. two years ago i didnt even throw it.

in between starts, at practice, and watching tv i would just hold the girp
i threw long toss and regular catch with the grip at all times

i dont think theres a pitcher in the MLB that can hit his spot exactly without fail.

if you want that, its not all about throwing that pitch a lot but also about consistent mechanics.

without consistent mechs your going to have a hard time controlling any pitch .

The more reps you get in throwing with your change-up grip, the more comfortable you’ll get with it. The more comfortable you are, the better you’ll be.

I alway remind my pitchers to throw with all their grips when throwing at practice or just playing catch.
