Hold or grip the ball as you would for a four seam fastball.
Go into your normal windup. Raise your leg a little bit higher, so that when you land down, your foot in the ground, it gives firm support and balance.
- The pitcher’s hips and shoulders have to be in sync for this pitch to work.
Use your right or left non-dominant arm to rotate your body before releasing the ball. This will cause you to release the ball as late as possible, so as confuse the batter.
Throw the ball with your palm facing third base for a right handed pitcher and first base for a left handed pitcher.
As you release the ball, turn your hand like the opposite of a curve ball or like a screwball. Rotate right for a lefty and left for a right. It should have a bullet-like spin.
Allow the ball to roll off your pointer finger.
Release fast. The pitch should look like either a fastball and comes in like a changeup or vise versa.
- Although this doesn’t do as much damage as a screwball it can cause injury. Use it only as your out pitch or it may cause injuries, due to the torque. Thanks! Helpful 2 Not Helpful 0
