I know it’s a little hard to fix something when you don’t have a video. But the thing is:
My fastballs tend to end up in the dirt. It usually starts down in the zone but instead of staying on that plane it breaks and end up in the dirt.
I know it could be a good pitch if I could throw it in the dirt when I wanted, but right now I have no control.
So it’s a big issue, because I end up walking too many guys.
I think of two things that may cause this:
I’m not keeping the fingers on top of the ball when releasing it. Sometimes I feel like the ball comes out of my hand by the index finger, not squared.
Problem with the stride.
I think it should be the 1st option, what do you guys think? Any thoughts?
