Ok so as some of you know Ive been pitching at my baseball camp and and my highschool conditioning center. When I first started my camp I was pitching terribly… no control. The the pitching coach told me to break my hands sooner and for some off reason or another When i started to break my hands sooner my motion itself got kind of quick. the other pitching coach was subbing for mine one day and said that he said my motion looked rushed but that I was throwing so good that he didnt want me to change it. Is it bad? To be honest I have almost no balance point. when I go into my motion I try to have everything going towards the plate… so as my knee gets to max height My body is starting to go forward already. Is this good or bad? So at my highschool camp the pitching coach told me that he wanted me to stop when I lift my knee to get a “balance point” and I was really kind of ignoring him for 2 reasons
#1 I went in this year thinking that I really could care less wether or not he wants me on his team this year. he has denied me the last 2 years not because Im im sub par or anything he just has his “set team” So I figured That since I probably wont make the team anyways I’ll just makee some of his superstars look bad and Im doing that so far. Most of the Var kids are impressed with my pitching and the JV coach is impressed with my pitching aswell and everyone at my other baseball camp.
#2 my motion has worked for my so far and my stamina seems to be better then in years past. I pitched about 100 or more pitches saturday and I pitched monday for my highschool about 40-50 pitches and today my arm feels good enough to throw ( dont worry I wont haha)
Should I have listened to him? and what are your thoughts?
