Baseball Tips & Tricks : How to Throw a Sinker


The sinker is a pitch that basically breaks
down and usually into the batter if you’re a right handed pitcher and it’s a right handed
batter. The way that a sinker is accomplished, it’s basically a two seam fastball grip, the
largest on your hand is the finger that is on top, and at about the twelve o’ clock position
when you release the ball. The spin and your fingers turning on the inside of the ball
creates a rotation, it makes the ball sink down, and into the right handed batter if
you’re a right handed pitcher or down into the left handed batter if you’re a left handed
pitcher. And that’s the sinker.

  1. ok im working on my sinker and i cant do the lat part when u flick ur wrist on the inside of the ball,but cant u just bring ur wrist straight down instead?

  2. I think the thumb position on the bottom of the ball is important. It needs to be between the seems on the bottom of the ball. It's also important to keep your hand on top of the ball so as not to "Cut" the ball. If you are practicing this pitch, you shouldn't feel a lot of strain on your wrist. If you do, you are doing something wrong. The key to this pitch is that it is easy for young pitchers to throw and does not put a lot of stress on the wrist and does not require a lot of velocity.

  9. guys! there is a tutorial on my channel for the sinker and I'm pretty sure it's 100% accurate but all comments and tips are highly appreciated!

  10. umm is it just me or does every pitch in all his vids wen it switches to the cather view …look the same.. haha

  11. this is like when someone says they can throw a sinker and they just chuck the ball in the air and it drops

  12. at least at his age he is outside doing something instead of being cooped up inside like most people gotta give him props for that

  13. "a sinker is a pitch that breaks down and into the batter"
    Timeout isnt dat wat a screw ball does???????????
    I could have sworn sinkers gradually fall from a high point to a low point in a quicker movement than a forkball dat just drops

  14. They reuse the "demonstation" for every video, look closely and you will see it is the exact same every time
