How To Throw a Splitter

split finger fastball grip

splitter (or split finger fastball) is thrown in basically the same way as a fastball -- using the same arm action, and arm speed. The main difference in the grip.

With a splitter grip, you want to split the seam, hold the baseball deeper in the hand, and throw it with a slightly stiffer wrist. It also helps to have bigger hands, which it why this pitch typically works better for older, more advanced pitchers. - Steven Ellis
