I have a pitcher who is working with a coach that tells him a SHORTER stride is better. That a long stide will cause arm injury.
Has anyone had experience with shortening a stride (benefits, disadvantages).
Personally, I have always have encouraged a long stride. Tom House says the length of your body is ideal. I really believe that a LONGER stride is critical to utilizing power throughout the entire body. However, I have been wrong before, and may be teaching an "outdated" method.
