if u get your ball u will see that there are 2 narrow seams close together. put your index and your middle finger on those seams and your thumb will be on the bottom without!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! touching the seams, if u do it could mess up the hole pitch. if u want more movement put pressure on your index finger. have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
