Back leg and the rubber


#1

Ok I filmed myself today pitching and I can view the video in slow-mo and I noticed my back foot leaves the rubber before I release the ball. It’s not that much earlier but should it come off the rubber before I throw the ball? And if what I am doing is wrong what does this affect and how should I go about fixing it?

Check out the video of Mark Prior on this site. If I recall correctly, you can’t see his back foot. But you can still tell it comes off the rubber - quite a ways, actually - before he releases the ball. That’s a good thing. It’s caused by momentum which is also a good thing.
