[quote=“jmart917”]As a right handed pitcher when your left foot lands, should it land facing third then twist towards home, or should it land already facing home?
Also, one big thing that’s been bothering me is my back leg. Shouldn’t the back leg bend a little as you come home. When I stay tall on that leg, I find I get the ball up.[/quote]
I think your stride foot (left foot) should be pointing at the target upon landing. I don’t know why exactly you have to do this way, but every some major leaguer do it, so you should follow them hehe
But remember, try to “open up your foot” late. I mean, when you are striding, go with it pointing towards the 3B. I think that will help you not to open up your hips too early.
I bend it just a little. I’m not a tall guy, 5’9’’ so if I bend it too much I won’t have the power to drive my body forward.
Again, there is no problem by bending the back leg, if you have enough power to drive your body towards home plate then keep doing it.
