Hi!

I have for the past 5 years been proven to squeeze my ball to much. I have since then drilled my thumb with IT, lateral pitch (left?)and 1/4-1/8 (somewhere there) forward pitch, oval thumb to get passed the idea of squeezing the ball. Now I have a thumb that is snug and I don't feel any excessive grip pressure, I dont hit up on the ball.

Still, I'm proven to have thumb injuries pointing to high grip pressure like a very acute bruising latteralwise from outer part of the thumb and in to the middle (pictured below). this on the front of the thumb. I experience "bowler's thumb" and I have bruising under the nail and injury north west of the nail (seen in picture together with bruising). I am also prawn to hang up on the thumb with release when I feel my hole is snug and the grip very relaxed.

You're either squeezing it, have too much forward in the thumb or both.
I think its squeezing from too large of a thumb hole.
That bruise is from catching the front edge of the thumb hole.

Thank you. I can't see how I squeeze the ball now, and the thumbslug is changeable and on the line to be too snug. So, it is the front side of the slug that making this bruises?
