[quote=“pointlesskid”]Thanks for your input, Roger. Because of NCAA rules, I’m forced to work on mechanics mostly by myself and of course with the help of the great people here. Ever since i’ve be instructed to stay back longer, I feel as if i’ve found a comfortable tempo that allows me to have my body in sync and be able to repeat it. This is the problem i’ve had my entire college career. I’ve had my good outings and by bad ones and until last year, i was never able to string them together. The only problem was last year I started out 4-0 with a 2.5 era…and within the span of three outings my season era was in the high 4s. I feel like i’m going in the right direction.
That being said is the next step to quicken up the pace to get a little more force towards the plate?[/quote]
Yes, this would be a good approach and I would suggest doing it by making small, incremental adjustments instead of one big adjustment. Make a small adjustment, accept that it will push you outside of your comfort zone, and put in the reps to pull it back into your comfort zone. Then repeat.
