How do you grip the ball when throwing in the field?

Throwing from the field

When throwing from either the infield or the outfield, learn to throw a "four seamer". By properly gripping the baseball, you can get four seams of the ball cutting the air. This will create a straighter, stronger throw. If you don't know what a four seamer is, have a professional show you!
