Pinky loop

Wednesday, June 24, 2009 by Anonymous

I notice alot of the big leaguers and college players looping their pinky on the knob of the bat. What does this achieve?

Some players feel as if the pinky off allows them to control the bat weight more effectively by keeping their grip strength lower on the bat. Some players will position their last finger off the bat to keep the grip more in the fingers and less in the thumb part of the hands. Grips for most amateur players can be checked by asking them to pop their index fingers up on both hands. Both index fingers should be pointed in the same direction to ensure a middle-position of the bat in the hands.
