Baseball Tips & Tricks : How to Throw a Gyroball

The question is asked, how to throw a gyroball?
The gyroball was invented basically in Japan by the Japanese pitchers and brought to America
in the major leagues. And basically it’s a combination of using your body at the same
time that you use the throwing motion. The ball is basically gripped in a fastball manner,
but as you start your throwing motion, the hips and the lower half of your body along
with the core section of your body rotates simultaneously with your arm, creating a gyro
motion. And then the ball is thrown and released much that way. Now the hand needs to be held
back with the wrist in a cocked position during the throwing of this ball, and then it is
snapped down as the body rotates through. Also the head needs to drop significantly
at just at – just slightly after the point of release. But you’re using your body and
perfecting the turning of the hips, the core section, and the arm simultaneously as you’ve
got your wrist in a cocked motion, it’s very difficult. And I would not recommend this
for any players fourteen or under to even try this pitch, because it can be very harmful
to your arm, trying to learn this pitch. But if you’re older, you want to pick it up, that’s
some heads on how to throw a gyroball and basically that’s how the Japanese brought
to the American game the gyro pitch.

  4. That's not how a gyroball works. It's the arm motion. Instead of following through normally, your arm is supposed to go straight down or even a little out.
