Baseball Pitching Grips

The Two - Seam fastball, quite simply is a great pitch to get hitters out. It is held with the seams unlike the Four - Seam fastball that is held across the seams. Please notice the thumb is held between the two fingers below the ball. Very important to have daylight between the ball & the palm of the hand. If your palm touches the ball it can create arm injuries. The Two - Seamer as it is often called when thrown by a right handed pitcher  moves away from a left handed hitter and into a right handed hitter. A left handed pitcher's Two - Seam fastball moves away from a right handed hitter and into a left handed hitter. The action of the ball is often called tailing. The Two - Seam fastball has three characteristics. The hitter sees more red in the ball, than a Four - Seam fastball, it has more movement than a Four - Seamer and has less velocity than a Four - Seam fastball. If a hitter can visually recognize the differences between a Two- Seam & Four seam fastball it can be very advantageous to a hitter. There are baseball hitting drills that can help the hitter to visualize the differences between these two pitches.
