My uncle is friends with Royals pitching coach Guy Hansen, who was formerly with the Richmond Braves (AAA). My uncle told Coach Hansen that he had a nephew that liked to pitch (me), and asked him if he had any pointers. Hansen replied with something along the lines of, “I have seen many pitchers destroy their arms by not throwing 3/4.”
So upon my uncle’s return, he told me about this tidbit of information, and we tossed the ball around a little bit so he could tell me what I needed to adjust ‘slot-wise’. It turns out that 3/4 is a lot lower than I previously expected. This felt very uncomfortable to me, and it still does when I try to throw that way.
So my question is, is there a correct ‘slot’ to throw from, or should one rely more on what feels comfortable?
