hey guys i want to learn 3 new pitches the splitfinger, knuckle, and the curve. i have thrown all of these pitches from the way my coaches siad to throw them, but i never seem to see a diffrence in speed or motion.
for the split, i have almost no idea how to throw it, i want a pitch that will go high at first and then just dramaticly drop at the end. don’t know if this is the pitch that does this, but if it is, i need to learn the grip and how to throw it
for my Kuckler, i haven’t thrown this pitch in about a month and when i threw it yesterday i had only a bit of rotation, and very little movement (btw i throw it like Tim Wakefield, using the horseshoe seam on the ball)
and finally my curve, i want to make this pitch one of my best, when i throw it it doesn’t really move up and down like it should it mostly just goes up and comes down a bit. I don’t know what’s wrong but it is supposed to go up and then come swining down. that is the action im trying to get from this pitch, right now i am not sure how to throw it, or if i should throw it hard or slow…
hope u guys can help me thx…
P.S i am 17 years old, i am a senior in high school been pitching since freshmen year
knuckle- 50-54mph(having problems don’t throw much)
