I’m really interested in throwing the shuuto pitch. The shuuto is a pitch that is mostly used by Japanese pitchers. It is a really nasty pitch and mostly effective against a right handed batter and can break inside to their chest. I asked some pitching instructors but none of them have never heard of the shuuto before. I saw a video and it says you grip it like a 2 seam fastball and to throw the shuuto you have to put pressure on your index finger. I did this, but there’s no movement or break to the inside. Does anyone know how I can throw this pitch? There might be something wrong with my grip and I kinda want to hear it from someone who throws it.
Here’s what a shuuto looks like.
Here’s my grip. Tell me if there’s anything wrong with it.
