I agree, this was one of the first things I saw with your mechanics.
I’m going to come strait out with you and you realize it too. Your mechanics look a lot different than most peoples. You are probably down on yourself becuase things look really odd in your mechanics. Now I’ll give you some good news. These few simple things you’ve been told in this post, will have your mechanics looking a whole hell of a lot better. Now the majority of the people that post videos on this website have good looking mechanics. Now from there we can tear and rip away at them further but they look good. Now what does looking good mean? Well not much but it can really help with your self confidence and usually when things look good they are good especially with pitching. If you get these things down, you will say to yourself, wow look at my mechanics they look pretty damn good. Now for me when I came to this site my mechanics weren’t all too bad looking and I didn’t know the little problems I had. So I already said well my mechanics looked good so lets see what they can pick out. Now a few months later from that point I wasn’t just saying wow my mechanics look good, I was saying wow my control, velocity, and movement is a whole lot better.
Do you see how things work here? Your a step behind most but its not too big of a step a minor one with some easy fixes.
I’ve heard this and maby someone else can back this up or say its wrong. Taking a few towels, knotting them up and sticking them between your fingers, so the knot is in the crotch of your fingers with the rest haning down. You clench your first and stand in front of a mirror and just go through your motions. It’s a substitute for the ball so you can go through your motion and not kill your arm without a resistance or accidently release a baseball into that mirror you set up.
