Baseball Tips & Tricks : How to Throw a Sinker

The sinker is a pitch that basically breaks
down and usually into the batter if you’re a right handed pitcher and it’s a right handed
batter. The way that a sinker is accomplished, it’s basically a two seam fastball grip, the
largest on your hand is the finger that is on top, and at about the twelve o’ clock position
when you release the ball. The spin and your fingers turning on the inside of the ball
creates a rotation, it makes the ball sink down, and into the right handed batter if
you’re a right handed pitcher or down into the left handed batter if you’re a left handed
pitcher. And that’s the sinker.
