Rich balswich pitching video

I think fastpitchfoundations.com (Balswick, Pauly, Java) is somewhat aimed that idea [MENTION=16861]Wtedalgo[/MENTION]. Just waiting for it to launch like watching water boil.
Fastpitch Foundations is like a flying squirrel....
We've heard of them, but no one has actually ever seen one!! ;)

Cool video, can someone more experienced point me in the right direction here...

I see Rich's hand finishes palm up after releasing the ball here (counter-clockwise spin). How does this compare to the football drill where the palm finishes up (clockwise spin)... two different methods? or am i missing something..

Appreciate it!

It's a change-up, same 12-6 spin but slower. You can kill speed with the thumb or not following through and pulling back on release.

How do you kill the speed with the thumb if you are getting on top of the ball for the dropball?
