Pitching Help!

I just signed up for this web-site, I attend a D2 college and we do not have a pitching coach. I need desperate help with my change up, I am wanting to play at the next level, and I know how important it is to have a good change up…

Here is my problem…I have messed around with different change up grips in the past but right now i’ve been trying to throw a 2-Seam circle change up… The problem is it really has no movement, and any change up grip I try seams to always be high, or right down the middle…If you have any advice please let me know.

Welcome aboard matt!

Since I throw a rather good change up, I will tell you how I throw my change up. I hold mine the classice way- three fingers across the seems with the pinky tucked back. Then I throw as hard as i would throw a fastball. I can feel the difference in the velocity. I also try to aim, bouncing a lot of the time, but that gets me into the sense of keeping it low as well. Good Luck
