There's a D1 player I used to talk about pitching with, and he told me that standing on the glove side of the rubber will make it harder for similar handed hitters to pick up the ball off you, and you'll be more effective against them. He said this is because you release the ball behind them.
Does anyone here know if there's any truth in this?
The same player also advocates long distance running, so I'm hesitant to take his advice. It does seem a little off, Beause the rubber is even with the plate and the batter stands to the side of that.
