O-kay this was my first pitching session in about a month or 2. and i started off terrible…i couldn’t get my fastball to hit the zone. But i told my dad i wanted to learn a third pitch (i recommended the slider) and he said i should try it so i did. the first few had a lot of break but were no where near the strike zone so i slowed my arm down to get the snap and timing of it down. It was pretty sweet but i didn’t get a consistent break to it. Some dropped some cut left and some cut and dropped. but all of those movements are effects seen in many sliders so I;m not doing to shabby with that. the control wasn’t bad either i hit the zone with it more than i missed.
Ive also being trying out the screwball and i told him " Let my try one more pitch" i threw the screw it was too low but it definetly cut into a right-y. My dad was suprised and asked which way i snapped my wrist (since most breaking ball from a right-y go towards a lefty) and i told him it was a screw… He thought it was cool but said it might be too dangerous to throw cause it could damage my elbow (i already knew but i just wanted to see if i could do it)
Sooooo this spring if i practice enough i will be pitching a :
2 seamer, a splitter , and a slider…and i would seriously want to try a screwball too…i don’t want to throw it a lot but it would help as a suprise pitch
you gotta admit the pitches i throw are a bit unorthadoxed which might give me a good edge. (most HS pitchers throw 4 seamer a curve and a change up)
