here are some videos from a recent 9u tournament. I would appreciate some feedback as to what things my son can improve on.
one of the things i have noticed and we have not really worked on is the front arm action. Most major league pitchers tend to separate hands at around the belly button and lead wit the front arm in a swinging motion to a fully extrend arm then into the tucked position. my son tends to keep his hands high and just bring the ball down and push forward with his glove side into a bent arm L shape (insted of the extended front arm) then into the tucked glove position.
I have seen a few high level pitchers pitch this way so is that something i should be working on to fix or just leave it for now? his coach has advised me it is not an issue and i have not messed with it since i am trying to get him more consistent by working on other things such as keeping his head still, throwing out in front over the front foot etc.
