Do not despair.
Long ago, my wise and wonderful pitching coach told me that just about any pitch can be turned into a nice changeup, and he demonstrated several for me and showed me how to throw them. Let me pull a few out of my overflowing basket of changeups for you to consider.
For openers, there’s the “Bugs Bunny” changeup. This is a very nice palmball, the first one I picked up and a good one it was. For this one, you grip the ball with all four fingers on top and the thumb underneath for support—well back in the palm of the hand, hence the name, but don’t grip it too tightly because you don’t want to squeeze the juice out of the ball! You throw it with the same arm motion and the same arm speed as for the fastball, and you can loosen the grip a bit and put more pressure on the middle finger. Next, consider the knuckle-curve, which can be used either as a power pitch or as a changeup—you use any knuckleball grip and throw the curve, either as is or with an easier wrist action. That one comes in there looking like a fastball and then suddenly drops like a glass hitting the floor and shattering into little bits. And how about the “C” change? This one is a variation of the circle change but much easier to throw; you form a backward “c” with the thumb and forefinger and the other three fingers on top and a little off center. And don’t discount the slider! It’s actually easier on the arm than the curveball—a lot of professional pitchers have found this out for themselves—and even though this is a power pitch, you can change speeds on it. These are just a few examples—you can experiment with them and see which one strikes your fancy, and work on it. Two-pitch pitchers are most often closers, by the way. :baseballpitcher:
