Okay I don’t know how well this idea will be received by you guys.
I was watching Prime 9 “Team of the 60’s” earlier on MLB Network. The pitcher (his name just slipped my mind) had a delivery where every motion he made would basically obstruct the view of the ball and the throwing hand.
I was thinking maybe I need a video to explain what I mean but here’s my explanation in text.
As I go through my normal delivery instead of tucking my glove so early why not keep the glove up in front of my throwing side until release and make the ball harder to pick up?
I don’t know if this would work for some type of power pitcher or anything like that because it may screw up your balance and timing but I was thinking, as a knuckleballer it would be a way to keep a batter from picking up whether my fingers are curled or not on the ball when I bring my throwing arm through, a way to disguise my non-knuck pitches so that my fastball doesn’t get walloped to the moon when I really need a strike.
I don’t know, just a thought any opinions? Comments? Questions?
