Hey I’m Mike and today I am going to show
you how to throw a fork ball. When gripping a fork ball you need to take your index and
your middle finger and spread them in this fashion. As you spread your fingers you need
to force the baseball as far down into your fingers as you can without injuring yourself.
This will allow you to gain a grip that will allow you to throw the fork ball pitch. As
you throw the fork ball pitch, the ball should slide out of the top of your fingers, creating
a tumbling effect as the ball is thrown towards its target. As the ball moves towards the
target, the tumbling spin should allow the ball to drop inevitably deceiving the hitter.
It is important to stay on top of the fork ball to give it the proper sink. I will now
show you how to demonstrate the fork ball pitch. That’s how you throw a fork ball.
