    I work on and think about the knuckleball everyday. I am really stuggling with switching back and forth from fastball to knuckleball and vise versa. Is there a trick to it?

    • I can’t say there’s really one trick to it, but try this — wait to accelerate on both the fastball and the knuckleball. Have the patience to wait until the ball can be delivered to the target in a straight line. Fight the urge to accelerate when the ball is behind your head in the cocked positions and wait until the ball is out in front of you to put the pedal to the metal. Hough would tell me that all the velocity comes when the ball is out in front of you after your hand has beaten your chest to the plate. Do this for both pitches.
