This has been a great resourse but I am confused about one section on drill/fit/soreness.
AFFECTS OF SPAN AND/OR PITCH CHANGES
All L/R pitches are from a RH point of view when refering to soreness.
When refering to L/R for fingers and thumb it is when looking at the back of the hand.
+ Reverse = Earlier thumb exit, increased grip pressure may be required, possible soreness to the front or back of the thumb.
+ Forward = Later thumb exit, reduced grip pressure may be required, possible soreness to front or back of the thumb.
+ Left = Reduced axis rotation, possible soreness to right side of the thumb at the tip and left side at the base.
+ Right = More axis rotation, possible soreness to the left side of the thumb at the base and right side at the tip.
+ Reverse = Less lift, earlier finger exit, reduces rotation, possible soreness to the pad side.
+ Forward = More lift, later finger exit, increased rotation, possible soreness to nail side, or broken blood vessels under the nail.
+ Left = Axis tilt enhancer if all pitches are biased left from your normal pitches, possible soreness to right side of finger tip.
+ Right = Possible soreness to left side of finger tip.
+ Span = More loft, more axis rotation, more reverse required, possible soreness; thumb tip nail side, thumb base away from nail, blood under thumb or finger nails, finger pads.
- Span = Less loft, less axis rotation, more forward may be used, possible soreness; at the crease of first knuckle on fingers away from nail, thumb knuckle nail side, blood under thumb nail (clipping), thumb side away from palm.
On thumb pitch....+LEFT= soreness to right side of thumb at tip and left side at base
+RIGHT= soreness to left side at base and right side at tip
Don't these two say the same thing with just the front and back halfs of the sentence reversed ? I am not being picky here but am instead trying to figure how to cure a soreness problem for a lady. So which way do you move the pitch(lateral) if she tests with coke bottle to be 1/8 right(under palm) and gets sore on her right side of thumb(when viewed from back of hand)?She is righty. The ball she is currently using has a 1/8 left pitch. Am I wrong , I feel moving her to her coke bottle tested right pitch may worsen the soreness instead of curing? thanks, Al
p.s. will post this under drilling if needed, but want to clear up this reference material that I am sure gets a lot of viewing because of its completeness.
