How to hold a baseball

 

Many young baseball players hold a baseball incorrectly.   

They want to grab the ball tightly. This is actually a mistake because when you clench a ball tightly you lose the ability to use your fast twitch muscles.  It is your fast twitch muscles that enable you to whip your arm through the air and throw the ball with a high velocity. 

How do you communicate this with your young players?
