Balance

does the way you point your toe have a say in your balance. does it matter to point your toe up or down. what do you guys prefer, poiniting your toe up or down, and why. i am curious if this effects a pitchers balance.

at what point during the pitching delivery

I think hes talking about in the leg kick and you want that foot to be relaxed and pointed down.

your foot should be straight when runners are on
in order to pick off

i say what ever feels right ot you during the full wind up

exactly how does keeping your foot straight while in the stretch help you pick runners off?

Your foot should just go with your leg. Pointing it or flexing it shouldnt affect anything. Just let it go with your leg Lift with your knee not your foot.
