Question for you guys.
My guy continues to be inconsistent with keeping his toes on the ground at ball release…ala Curt Schilling like, but not quite as bad.
Can it be that he’s stepping closed a little vs. on a straight line from his post foot (middle of it)
I’m thinking if you step a little open from a straight line to the catcher then it may help
Also his drag line goes to the forward and to the right towards 2 o’clock
again if a pitcher is stepping a tad bit closed I don’t see how his back toe can drag in a straight line from the rubber…wouldn’t it tend to go towards 2’oclock?
I’ve been watching the drag lines lately ofa lot of pitchers and havn’t figured this out yet what causes some to go forward, some to bear off to the right before coming up etc.
Not keeping back toe down
It’s definitely not a strength issue with the kid as he can squat 325 and dead lift 400. (He’s 5 foot 9 and 160 pounds) He has plenty of momentum going to the plate as well and his stride length is 6 of his shoe lengths long…which equates to near 6 foot or about 100% of his height.
