[quote=“garyalarson”]I agree with LB. A splitter is a type of change…and if your change is working, I’d stick with that. MLB pitchers throw it because it is easy to learn, there is no pronation of the wrist, and they are all above 6.0 feet. Which is means their hands can split the ball pretty easily.
The key to the splitter is the thumb placement. The thumb needs to be centered between the middle and index finger. Then simply snap/pull down like you would a fastball. Try different placements…with your fingers split over the horseshoes, in front of the horseshoes. Vary the depth of your fingers splitting…
But honestly dude, 4 pitches is more than enough. You can have 4 decent pitches, or 2 wicked pitches…I’d take 2.
I’d rather have one 95mph fastball. Because I’d make the majors on my fastball, the hard stuff is done, anyone can teach you a curveball, it’s the fastball they scout(to a point)
