Fosh pitch

anyone heard of the fosh pitch

Heard of it but don’t know what it is.

The “foshball”—some say it’s an acronym for what batters have to say about it when it slips past them for a strike—is a cross between the straight changeup and an off-speed split-finger fast ball. And it behaves like a sinker. You grip the ball with the index and middle fingers spread just slightly apart, off the seams, a loose grip, and when a righthanded pitcher throws it it breaks in on righthanded batters and away from left-handers. You might call it a “salad bowl” pitch. Mike Boddicker is said to have come up with that one, and there are some pitchers who use it effectively. 8)
