forgot to tell you the speed of my curve ball.
53 mph 80 per cent strikes.
Do not shorten your stride. That will have a negative affect.
If your curveball is too slow then you are either gripping it too loose or too deep in your hand.
If you want a faster spinning curveball you must grip it tighter. I gripped my as tight as possible as did my son Ryan.
To throw more strikes with a breaking ball you can do what you are doing now. Loosen the grip and/or push it back deeper in your hand.
A good curveball will normally be 15 mph off your fastball. Yours is much too slow and the higher up you go the easier it will be for hitters to adjust.
Dick should I throw it faster?
this past weekend they couldn’t hit it.it had a sharp brake to it.
should I play with the speeds using harder grips or try to get 15 mph off top speed.
