There are many who disagree with him about issues like releasing closer to the target, the towel drill and his upright posture issue.
Another "absolute" with no backup. This is just patently untrue. So, you're telling me that every MLB pitcher who tilts the shoulders opens up too soon. Sorry, I can't buy that. Take a look at Clemens, Nolan Ryan, Schilling, Mariano Rivera, Smoltz, Wagner or Scott Kazmir, to name just a few. Even Maddux. Do they open up too soon? I don't think so.
Again, an "absolute" that isn't. High level pitchers all over prove that this is not an absolute. There is no definitive "cause and effect" here. There are too many examples of this not being the case.
Agreed but where's the proof that this is less than perfect and that the "right way", as you put it, is what Tom House is recommending? As far as I know, nobody has been able to, without a doubt, prove that ANY way is the RIGHT way.
I'm going to regret this. Let's call it a moment of temporary insanity for me but I'm going to quote Mike Marshall now :shock: I only do this to illustrate how others disagree with Tom House, actually they all disagree with each other. That's the nature of guru's I guess. Marshall states very emphatically that high speed film shows that the ball is release more in line with the throwing side ear than out front. Who's right? I don't know. I just do know that the noted "results" of shoulder tilt aren't "cause and effect". If a pitcher opens up too soon, it's cause is elsewhere. There are just too many examples of shoulder tilt with NOT opening early.
