How to Hold a Softball Correctly


When holding a softball, it’s important to get the correct grip. How we hold the ball is going to determine how well, how accurate, and how far we can throw it. The most common grip in holding a softball is considered the four-seam grip. We call it a four-seam grip because when the ball is rotating in one full rotation, four seams will travel parallel to the ground. That’s going to allow the ball to stay on a better path, as well as get good spin, which helps us create a little more velocity.
