[quote=“buwhite”]I am a little confused on your statement about “more rotational”, I’m not understanding what you mean?
On the scap load I disagree, I see a nice scap load on video 5 at about :02 seconds I see a nice glove side toward home and a good load at that point.
I really like his stride length and tilt, little like lyncecum. Like to see him square his supporting leg up to the pitching plate in his post, I like his hip drive toward home. I would like to see him keep his head on target, this is a huge one since at this point there is no way he can effectively field his position or protect himself against the rocket back at his head. Like to see what he looks like with a batter in the box! Finally get rid of the dang radar gun, I have seen so many guys use them during lessons and unless you are looking for differences between FB and CU it’s totally worthless.[/quote]
I disagree on almost all of what was said here. Trying to be in a “fielding position” may take away from his velocity and intent. I really enjoy watching older pitchers fall off to the side of the mound because they are trying to throw so hard. Was watching one video where the announcers could hear the grunts of Nolan Ryan from where they were.
Also the radar gun should stay. This gives him the oppurunity to try and throw a little bit harder every time he’s working on it. Wolforth used them at his camp, challenging every player to beat their previous reading. So i don’t think i would call it “totally worthless”.
