I just finnished up my first lesson/bullpen of the season and wanted to bring up something things my pitching coach told me to work on to get your perspective. I’ll get a new video up this week.
Reaching out - The one thing he probly stressed the most out of any. I would be leaning to my left side rather then going forward.
Staying less closed- I was staying closed too long so he told me that i should make my shoulders stay perpendicular to the mound rather then slightly closed. My hand was dragging behind and wasnt able to hit the low outside corner.
Hand Break- My hands were breaking too late which was another reason why my hand was lagging behind the rest of my body. he said i should “break the rubber” as in break my hands when my leg gets to the highest point. i was breaking my hands after that point and once i started moving forward already.
Leg lift - I was breaking the plane too much, which made it harder to get my leg around, which was cutting off my rotation. so now i raise the leg to be parallel with the mound.
Curve ball- I should start the curve ball later and finish harder. The earlier i start it the more it sails and is harder to get down in the zone.
I know it seems like alot, but for the first time throwing off a mound this year i felt great. Its still early.
Any drills for these things to help them sink in?
