Need tips for Knuckleball

I want to throw a knuckleball but there something wrong with my release I need some tips on throwing a Knuckleball :cry:

Make sure you keep a stiff wrist and only snap your wrist once you know the ball has left your hand.

Fingers guide the ball, not push it.

Almost everyone grips it differently. However, there are a few things that are common with all grips. One is that the ball is choked up against your palm.

I suggest you check out The Knucklebook while you’re at it.

I find that to put the ball over the plate you release the ball slightly higher then the fastball, but you still have to have the same arm action as a fastball.

if that makes any sence:)

Theres some website I heard that really helps with knuckleballs but I have seem to forgotten it :?. Anyone know what it is?

You are correct in saying that it is the same action as the fastball. The slightly higher release is something that I’ve heard a few other people talk about.

Bingo

I use a two finger grip which allows me to throw it like a fastball but if i try and throw it at the same angle it take a dive WAY to early bouncing before the plate.

i throw it wit 3 fingers on the horshoe seam and my pinky curled but on the side of the ball

Ok, well first of all go to KnuckleballHQ and get the Knucklebook, great resources.

Make sure you are comfortable with your grip and you aren’t trying to push the ball with your fingers, just following.

Personally I grip mine 3 fingered on the seam to the side of the horshoe and the 2 seams toward me are horizontal not vertical.
