LSU’s freshman ace has never timed the ritual, but the entire process — cutting each fingernail — covers more minutes than the normal nail-cutting experience for a 19-year-old college student. The right-hander devotes the most time to the index finger of his throwing hand, a key ingredient to what this story is all about: his curveball. The nail of Lange’s index finger must be perfect for the pitch to work, seeing as it rests atop the ball, helping spin the curve toward home plate. The nail must be cut close, but not too close. “It takes me time,” he said. “I don’t just cut it. ”. After all, Lange’s curveball is a big part of why he’s the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year, a multiple All-America team member and the first Tigers freshman to strike out 100 batters. It’s a big reason LSU won the SEC regular-season title and is in the College World Series. It’s the curveball. It’s the curveball. It’s not the 30 pounds or so that he has lost over the past two years. It’s the curveball — which will be on display Tuesday in LSU’s CWS elimination game against Cal State Fullerton. “As a catcher and a hitter, I’ve never seen a breaking ball like that,” LSU catcher Kade Scivicque said. — Lange’s curveball wouldn’t be so dominant.
