Hi! My name is Mike Lumley. On behalf of Expert
Village, I’m here to teach you pitching.
Putting what I call my power finger, my middle finger, and I go into 2-seam, so I put that
power finger right against the 2-seam lace and put my pointer finger right up beside
it. My power now puts up the lace so I have something strong to grip against, and then
other finger sits in. It’s not too light. I’ve seen some guys do this, but I keep my
fingers in tight on the ball just like I do my 2-seam fastball. My thumb stays directly
underneath. If you notice as we go through this, that
arm speed stays the same. You want to make sure that we’re going through this at the
same velocity, so there should be anywhere from. If you get a 10 mile split between your
fastball and your breaking ball, that’s probably the most desirable. The slower it gets the
easier it is to read and better hitters to react to.
