Long time reader - I know he is not on a mound but we have VERY little time on the fields available and the gnats will eat you alive during the day. We try to work on mechanics for 2 hours a day inside. I have an indoor area that is 100’ x 60’ so we can work without worry of limited daylight and extreme south GA gnats.
I have taken videos of him which he has improved from (there are some small things I still see) but the stride to home…I simply can not get him to push off and rotate the heel and reach with the glove side leg - it is more of a step or when he feels the transition of weight, he plops that foot down and throws - he does this from the mound also.
He has a scrimmage this Wed and will be starting on the mound that weekend. His accuracy seems fine, he can locate the ball were I ask him to but from what I see - his lower body is not in the throw and he is all arm. If I were to ball park his speed on the ball (40-47) as it stands they way he is throwing.
What can I do to help him? Has anyone had success with establishing a stride? I think he is over thinking the hip/shoulder separation (still not getting it yet).
Thank you for looking and thanks for your help
