Learn how to throw more pitches using different baseball pitching grips

In this section, you will learn several important baseball grips that are associated with pitching, including how to throw a fastball (4 seam and 2 seam), how to throw a changeup (all types), and how to throw a curveball (most types).

You will also learn how to throw various speciality pitches such as the slider, cutter and splitter.

It's been said many times that hitting is timing. If pitching is upsetting that timing, then the best way to do that is by using different baseball pitches that move different ways at different speeds.

Here are five things to keep in mind when attempting to learn new baseball pitches with different baseball pitching grips.

  1. In any given game, pitchers will likely throw at least 70% fastballs. For younger kids, that's all they will throw. So this is what you should naturally spend the most time on.
  2. Don't have unrealistic expectations when learning a new pitch. Remember, it's new, so do not expect to be perfect with the spin and location right away. These things take time. The best attribute to have when learning a new baseball pitching grip is patience.
  3. I would rather see you be great at a few pitches rather than mediocre at a bunch. Trying to learn several pitching grips at once will likely decrease your effectiveness on the pitches you'll use most often.
  4. Other pitches like screwballs and knuckleballs just aren't relevant for 99% of the pitching population, especially in Little League baseball and high school baseball. Concentrate on the pitches that can contribute the most to your success.
  5. Have fun! Learning new pitching grips is fun because you're making yourself better, and that's what it's all about.
