I was trying to throw a “gyro” the otherday, just for fun to see what kind of personal results I could get and I threw it, I noticed that I tried to put as much of a football spin on it but I only had it about 45 degrees turned, (assuming 90 would be perfect spiral) and I started with a 2-seam grip and I had alot of inward sink. Sharp. The faster I threw it the larger the break got. It was awesome.

Anyone else tried this pitch personally and what kind of results did you get?

I think I can throw this pitch. I get a pretty nice horizontal break, but it isn’t as dramatic as advertised. How exactly is it thrown?


Just read through this thread and you will get all the info you need on the gyro. There are some pretty good theroies.
