  1. Grip the ball as you would a four-seamer, across the seams with your index and middle fingers so that viewed from the front the seams form a sideways U-shape.
  2. Roatate your middle and index finger, and bring them together. This will leave your middle finger along the seam of the U-shaped seams closed end.
  3. Go into your windup, and hide how you are gripping the ball in your glove.
  4. Follow throw, and snap your wrist down while applying slight pressure with your middle finger for good velocity, this will cause the ball to move away from a right handed batter and in on a left handed batter
