Only using the thumb is illegal from what I heard. A safety issue maybe. At the same time, it could discriminate against a person without fingers.

Right, the fingerholes would have to be more symmetrical in size, pitch, and position, but the benefit would be two reactions from one ball.


The extra 75 bucks that you spend on a plastic ball that goes straight will be made up for when you place one spot higher in a league because your ball fits correctly.

At the same time, the finer details of grip fit don't apply as much to a thumbless, 2-handed approach. The fingers just need to get in and back out smoothly. Details of span, differences between left and right don't really matter.

If grip sizes and pitches don't matter, then there's something else wrong with your game.

Think a little more about it. A 2-handed approach the way Belmonte would do it uses a full-finger grip If you insert your fingers up to the second joint and do not use your thumb, what variables are important? I come up with pitch and hole size. The relative positions of the holes will adjust as you twist the ball left or right in your palm. As long as both holes are just big enough to allow either finger to fit, it should be possible to use them in a normal or reverse grip without a problem.
