This is the pitch I want to master
I’m a RHP and I want good movement dropping and tailing in. I get about 3 inch drop and tail, but I’d like to try to get more movement. Lowe/Maddux type movement.
I’ve tried throwing this pitch a variety of ways and typically get the same results. I’ve kept a relatively loose grip and I just looked at Wikipedia and they recommended a very tight grip with pretty much your whole finger tips on the ball opposed to just the finger tips.
I’ve also tried keeping my thumb extended under the ball and then tucking it underneath the ball which i’ve heard gives it a little more sinking action
I try to pressure the ball a little extra with my index finger as I release it
Lastly, I’ve thrown the ball normally and I’ve pronated my wrist trying to get additional spin but the ball moves just about the same either way.
Is there something else I should try? I throw low 80’s right now
