Closed Stride


Im a LHP and my lead stride foot is more on the 1st base side so I throw across my body. Any way to fix this?


Better to put up a video.


A video would be good. But, in the meantime, what makes you think something needs to be fixed?


i feel like i dont have a smooth delivery. and sometimes i would push the ball


Are you trying to avoid holes and poor surface conditions that your stride has to deal with?


Check if your drive foot heel is slightly away from the rubber. If it is you could be striding in that direction because your foot is pointed that way. Be sure your drive foot is perfectly parallel to rubber. Even a half inch can throw you off stride towards plate.
