Watch at: 00:00 / 00:00:20she keeps methis is the ultimate blitzball pitchingWatch at: 00:20 / 00:40tutorial we picked out 10 of the bestblitzball pitchesthat we use in our current games in thistutorialto teach you guys how to throw these sowe're gonna split these pitches up intotwo different sectionson one side we're gonna have all five ofthe fast balls and one sideall five of the off speed pitches thefive fast levels we will be going overWatch at: 00:40 / 01:00today will be the screw ballthe two and four seam fastball thecutterthe riser and lastly the sinker and thenafter we go over the five fastballs wewill move on to the fiveoff-speed pitches these five off-speedpitches willinclude the looping curve ball thecutting curve ballthe slurve the sidearm slider and lastlyWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20the knuckle drop so here we go startingoff with a screw ball so for the screwballtwo fingers on top thumb on the bottomand then with the screw ball the armangle you're gonna be throwing it atis a little bit of a submarine pitch notall the way downbut about at this angle-ish and thenWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40when you go to throw ityou're gonna sling your arm and at thesame time you're gonna try to have thatballroll off your fingers really snap aroundmake sure to finish on the other side ofyour body with the screw ballwhen you throw it let it roll off yourfingersthe best place to aim it is over on theleft part of the strike zoneWatch at: 01:40 / 02:00and then that spin on the ball will makeit cut back to the rightand the best portion of the strike'sgoing to throw it is this portion of thestrike zonebecause to a left-handed hitter it'sgoing to look like it's going to hit himinto a right-handed hitter it's going tolook like a ballhere's the screw ballWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20[Music]Watch at: 02:20 / 02:40one oh one one[Music]three and two nice screw ball the nextpitch we'll be doing is the two and fourseam fastball we mesh these two togethersince they are so similar the onlydifferenceis the arm angle on the four seamfastball your arm angle is going to beWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00right about here not quite all the wayover the topbut right here and then you're justgoing to throw it like a regularfastballmake sure the ball is still rolling offyour fingertips so that you can stillget as much movement as possiblebut with the four seam it is the bestpitch for accuracyhands down one last thing about the fourseam fastball if you are able to throwit hard enoughWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20get enough spin you will be able to geta nice bit of riseon your pitch so it'll move to the rightand rise at the same timewhich is a really good movement for apitch here's the four seam fastballWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40[Music][Music][Music]strike one gun first and second one outWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00strike three for the two senior armangle be right about herea little more sidearm than what the fourseam was putting your arm angle herewill give it a lot more movement side tosidethan the four seam fastball that's whythe two seam fastballshould move more than your four seamfastball the more you moveWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20your arm angle the more it should moveback and forththe higher you put it the more it'lleither move up and down or just astraight fast balland with both of these fastballs thesetwo pitches should be your most accuratepitches in your arsenalthis should be your go-to pitches tomake sure you're still pitching strikeshere's a two-seam fastballWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40we'll goWatch at: 04:40 / 05:00[Music]so next mix we'll be showing you is theriser for this pitch the number onething is to make sure you are throwingit over the topso i mean i'm not exaggerating this whenyou want to when you do this you want tothrow itstraight over the top not like the fourseam or the two seams straight over theWatch at: 05:00 / 05:20topand make sure to let it roll off yourfingers to get that rising actionuh to increase your accuracy of thispitch make sure to throw it a littlelower because if you do throw it alittle bit too high it'lljust be a ball high every time the goalis to get the maximumbackspin in order to get it to rise alsoanother thing about this fish you haveto throw up pretty hardin order to get movement on this pitchi'm not the best one to do it actually iWatch at: 05:20 / 05:40think mike of bombers is really goodso here are a couple of his risers[Music]here's the riserWatch at: 05:40 / 06:00[Music]the highwaysWatch at: 06:00 / 06:20[Music]ohWatch at: 06:20 / 06:40[Music]strike two so the next pitch we'll beshowing you is the cutterthe grip for this pitch you'll take yourpointer finger and your thumbhold it just like a dart on the blitzball when you throw this pitch there'sno flicking of the wrist or anythinglike thatall you're going to do is throw theWatch at: 06:40 / 07:00pitch with the grip and make sure youfinishon your opposite hip the other thing onthis pitch you really want to make yourfollow through as drastic as possible sowhen you come upyou really want to snap down as fast asyou canso you can get that spin on the ballwhile not havingto flick your wrist so you'll just haveWatch at: 07:00 / 07:20that natural motionthat'll move towards the left if you area right-handed throwerso this pitch will offset the two-seamfastball you're throwing it at the samearm angleand everything like that the only thingis it's moving the opposite wayjust a real good way to throw thehitters off the other thing with thecutter is you're going to want to throwit extremely hardjust as fast as you would throw yourWatch at: 07:20 / 07:40four seam your two seamthe reason for that is you don't want tomake this pitch look like a sliderthis pitch is still a fast ball it'sjust moving the opposite wayof a two seam just make sure to throwthis pitch really hardhere's the cutterWatch at: 07:40 / 08:00let's goWatch at: 08:00 / 08:20the last pitch of the fastball group isthe sinker so for the grip for thesinker you want to have your pointerfinger knuckle on the balljust looking like this and then yourmiddle finger on top and your thumb onthe bottom uh when you throw this pitchit's very similar to my riser i threw itkind of the samei throw it straight over the top becauseWatch at: 08:20 / 08:40i throw it over the top it looks justlike the riser so how this fish moves itdrops to the right sideit's supposed to hit the strike zonewell obviously it's supposed to hit thestrike zoneit's a strike zone if you master ithere's the sinker yeah it doesWatch at: 08:40 / 09:00Watch at: 09:00 / 09:20umnice little sinker action from caden nowwe're moving on to the off speed portionof the video so the sixth pitch we'll beshowing youWatch at: 09:20 / 09:40is the looping curve here's the gripyou'll want to take your middle fingerand your thumb wrap it around the balland you want to keep your pointer fingeroff the ball when you throw this you'regoing to want to come straight over thetop to where your hand is basicallyin front of you almost like you'recoming right over the toplike a tomahawk when you throw it you'llWatch at: 09:40 / 10:00want your arm bentlike this coming over the top and yourhand facingstraight towards the batter when youfinish so that when you come downsnap down you'll get as much downwardspin as much as possible because it'sbasically like a 12-6 curveso like i said finish down snap downhand towards the batter and you shouldWatch at: 10:00 / 10:20get a good amount of movement on thispitchone other thing about the looping or 126 curvedayton who's the best in the league i'vethrown this he throws it like the grip ijust showed youbut if you are more comfortable you canput both of these fingerson the ball just like a normal curveballgrip but still be comingstraight over the top that hand right infront of the batterso you can kind of throw it withWatch at: 10:20 / 10:40whichever one works just kind ofexperiment both outand see which one works better for youso here is a looping or 12 6 curveWatch at: 10:40 / 11:00oh that was niceWatch at: 11:00 / 11:20whoaoh a nice fishWatch at: 11:20 / 11:40[Music]oh mannice curveball so the next pitch we'regonna be showing you is the cuttingcurve ballalso known as just the regular curveballthere are a couple different grips forthis pitcheither two fingers on the top and thumbWatch at: 11:40 / 12:00on the bottom like a regular curveballgripor you can have your pointer finger be aknuckle on the balland throw it just like that matthewhausener league throws it with thisknuckle gripi can't quite get the knuckle grip downbut he throws it extremely welljust kind of use whichever one you needso with the 12 6 we came straight overthe tophand right in front of the batter butWatch at: 12:00 / 12:20for the curve ballit's going to be a little morethree-fourths action so you can get moreof this kind of curve instead of an upand down curvewith this pitch it does work a lotbetter if you do flick your wrist alittle bit as you throw itfor some of your younger ones that mightnot be too good for your arms but youwill get it to move a lot moreif you do successfully flick your wristWatch at: 12:20 / 12:40andfinish down low on the opposite hip whenyou throw this pitch you are going towant to throw up pretty hard since it isa cutting curve ballwith the 12 6 you don't have to throw itas hard as you can because you're kindof looping it up there just trying toget as much curve as possiblebut with the cutting curve ball it'ssupposed to be a nice sharp cutright into the strike zone i'm not nearas good as throwing this asWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00matthew hauser isyou guys will see a couple highlightswhen we show the curveballhere is the cutting or just the curveball here we goWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20good oh my goodnesswhooWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40nice curveballstrike three on a curveball the nextpitch we'll be showing youis the slur this pitch is a lot like thecurveball we just showed youthe only difference is we're changingthe arm angle from right hereWatch at: 13:40 / 14:00down to about here what i've learned toget better at this pitchyou want to almost sling your arm itmight make you less accurate to startoffbut slinging your arm keeping itstraight will give it the most movementpossiblealso when you throw this pitch you canchoose which way you want to do iti do flick my wrist when i throw this toget the maximum spin on itWatch at: 14:00 / 14:20and at the same time do want to throwthis pretty hardso it's not just sitting there on a tfor the battery to hit a home run off ofand then like always the finish isalways really important when it comes toblitz ballcoming right here as you come aroundreally want to snapall the way around really fast all theway around your ability so on the 12thsixththe release was here on the curveballWatch at: 14:20 / 14:40was hereand on the slurve it's more of this waykeeping your arms straight and comingright acrosshere here's a slurpWatch at: 14:40 / 15:00Watch at: 15:00 / 15:20[Music]the next pitch we'll be showing you guysis the sidearm sliderthis is one of my favorite pitches topitch to a right-handed batterbecause it looks like it's going to hithim at the last second it'll cut offand hit right in the strike zone to aWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40lefty you might not want to throw thispitch too often because literally justsitting there waiting on the platterand they'll probably have a hormone offof it if they're decent so the mechanicsfor this pitchor i guess we'll start off with the gripyou'll take your middle finger and yourthumbgrip it just like that kind of likedayton's looping curveballand then with this pitch the differenceis isWatch at: 15:40 / 16:00throwing it sidearm so you you'll wantto dip down come to right about hereand you'll want your forearm level withthe groundand then when you come down forearmlevel with the groundflick your wrist this way to get thatspin on itand it should be a straight left andright curvethe other thing about this pitch kind ofWatch at: 16:00 / 16:19like with all the rest the followthrough is veryimportant when you come hereafter you throw it finish on thecomplete other sideand it's almost really good we thread tocompletely rotate your body aroundto get as much spin on that ball aspossible so that you can fool the hitterone last good thing about this pitch itWatch at: 16:19 / 16:40really does offset the screw ball reallywell since you're throwing them at aboutthe same arm anglewith the screw ball you're throwing ithere justwith this arm motion and then with theslider you're also throwing it here justwith this arm motionso both pitches move the opposite waysthat's why both of those are really goodto use together so that the batteryWatch at: 16:40 / 17:00doesn't know whether you're throwing itleftor you're throwing it right i just wantto stress one last thing with thesidearm slider it is extremely importantand when you come here and step it'sreally important to bend downget low to the ground and then once youdo release that ballswing your whole body around so you'llcome down hereWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20and then finish like that so here is thesidearm sliderWatch at: 17:20 / 17:40strike three on the slider five in onepitchWatch at: 17:40 / 18:00oh what a slideryeah and we saved the best pitch forlast this is arguably the best pitchthat any of us throw in como blitzballthis pitch is fast and it drops likecrazy at the same timeso here it is so for the knuckle dropyou're going to take your handthese two fingers right here put them onWatch at: 18:00 / 18:20the ball you'll want to put your fingernails on the ballnot your knuckle not there now yourknucklebut your nails right on the ball andthen once you have these two on the ballyou're just gonna fill in your hand withthe rest of the spot so you got yourthumb on the ballgot that finger on the ball and that atthe bottom so this is what the gripshould look likeWatch at: 18:20 / 18:40and when you throw this there is nothingspecial to the grip you don't have to doanything specialjust throw it with this grip you'll havea nice dropping motionthe only thing you'll want to do is topractice this a lot so you can try tothrow strikes with it because it is thehardest pitch to throw strikes withthis pitch will drop by itself but thearm angle you will want to throw it atWatch at: 18:40 / 19:00is right about the four seam angle youdon't want to throw it all the waystraight up because then youraccuracy won't be as good you want tothrow it about at the four seamangle just throw it like normal finishdown with the gripyou don't have to flick your fingersjust throw it with the grip it'll have anatural dropthat should drop right into the strikezone once you get good enough at itWatch at: 19:00 / 19:20one last thing about the knuckle dropyou'll want to throw this fish just ashard as you do your four seamand it should just drop by itself hereisthe knuckle drop[Music]Watch at: 19:20 / 19:40[Music]Watch at: 19:40 / 20:00ohfor all you guys who did make it todayon the video i'm gonna give you guys onelast tipyou guys don't want to be too repetitivewhen you pitch in bliss ball

the exact samewhen you throw the two pitches forexample the riserand the sinker go really well togethersince you're throwing both of thoseright over the topthe four seam fastball and the 12 6curveball then you got the two seamand the curve ball and then the lastWatch at: 20:20 / 20:40pitch you got to offsetis the sidearm slider and then the screwholeall those pitches move in oppositedirections whether it's left to rightup and down you can really startthrowing your hitter off if the pitchlooks the exact same must move indifferent ways every single time youthrow itif you have even four of
