Staying on top

My coach told me that my 4 seams are cutting and when i looked at it when i threw i could see it. He said i need to stay on the top of the ball so that it wont cut but even when im focusing on while i throw i still do it. What are some good drills to keep me on top and throw straight? I would like to work so that i can differentiate between them and add a cutter to my arsenal

idk
i have the same problem

i get less movement when i use the two seam grip
and throw it like a four seam

use the mini four seam grip
grip it where the four seams are close together
(rotate the two seam grip 90 degrees)

hey man, you’ve got yourself a cutter right now :lol:

i got all the movement off my fastball
not all (gravity)

the “mini” grip worked for me

shortening your stride could help a little

you mention gravity as a factor in fastball movement? how hard do you throw?

70
75-77 max
well i know i throw a little slower than an eighty mph pitcher
