Greggas, Lefty and Dennis pretty much hit all of the bases. Keep your hand on the right side of the ball, not on the left side. You might have an improperly fit ball that prevents you from swinging the ball without squeezing the life out of it. Try putting your hand in the ball and watch as you put your thumb in the hole and see if you are bending the thumb as it enters the hole, this is a tell tale sign of you having to hold onto the ball instead of the ball holding onto you. This makes your hand squeeze and your arm tense up all of the way to the shoulder and you then swing the ball with your upper body instead of letting the ball swing your arm.
