Well, over the past few days I’ve been experimenting with a circle change and decided to spend more time on my knuckleball. Needless to say, Both just seemed to click recently.
My circle change has some nice tailing action, cutting in on same-side hitters. I have some sink too.
I decided to try a new grip on my knuckleball and I had immediate success. A little tweaking and I had a pitch that I could throw with consistency. The ball has very little to no spin. The movement I usually get is sink and an occasional wobble.
Now, I have a few questions:
For my change up, what can I do to get more movement? What can I do to stay consistent (just keep practicing?) and not hang it?
For the knuckleball, how can I stop lateral spin?
