MY KNUCKLEBALL move just a bit

my knuckleball doesn´t spin not even a bit but it moves little .could it be because of the weather condition or I´m not throwing it fast enough .if anyone could help …

A really good knuckleball doesn’t spin. You should consider yourself lucky that it doesn’t. It’s harder than **** to hit a knuckleball that doesn’t spin. Congrats! Just keep throwing it like that is my advice. :slight_smile:

I disagree. Even if you watch Wake, very rarely is it absoloutely zero spin.

You need it goind above 55 MPH at least. Take movement over lack of spin. I personally like about 1/8 of a rotation. I mean I’m still working on consistancy but, that is when I get the most movement. Just avoid direct side spin and back spin and you’ll be on your way.

If you can get a slight spiral rotation you may be able to even get the ball to corkscrew. So try to get as little spin as you can but ask your catcher or teammates in BP if it’s moving. Movement is really what you want.

You’re throwing it either too fast or too slow.

Even though it’s possible I don’t think it’s going too fast.

For maximum movement you want mid to high 60s or low 70s.
