A myth. Thats only when you’re throwing the splitter wrong. If you throw it right its ok.

I thought there i nothing on a spittle you just grip it on )( the 2 seam fastball and split your hands until they are not in the middle the outside of the )(. Then you just throw it like a fastball correct??

That works sometimes but alot of the time you snap down with ur wrist.giving it the forward rotation
