What is an Eephous pitch?

An "eephus" pitch is a low velocity throw with a high arc, designed to trick the batter by disrupting his timing. Although the origin of the name "eephus" isn't definitively know it's suspected that it may be based on the Hebrew word "efes" meaning "nothing".


What is the eephus pitch?

When I caught in highschool it was used as a brutally slow change up. Sometimes the pitcher would throw it 10 feet in the air in a huge arc. Very demeaning to the batter. See Web Links for Video of the eephus pitch in action, Cleveland vs. New York, July 24, 1970.


How do you grip the eephus pitch?

eephus pitchlookin to be a good pitcher?...............well this is agood pitch grab a ball ......ok now pick up the ball like a change up when you throw lob it a bit and watch it strike out the batter There is a certain way you need to hold an eephus. You need to grab a baseball. The two seams you would hold to throw a two seamed fastball need to be side to side instead of up and down. Then you hold the bottom seam with your thumb and index finger. Then you throw it as a normal fastball and as you throw it the ball will fly out of your hand with the rotation going forward. Then as the ball gets closer it just tumbles down a good 5 feet. I learned to throw this from my pitching coach who played 4 years D2 ball.
