Flat Ground vs. Mound

I would love to hear input on flat ground work/drills vs. the same from
a mound. There is considerable difference of opinion on the value of
flat ground work.

There has been a load of discussion on that topic over the years on the various discussion sites. Take a look the following, and do a search on “flat ground” on just about any baseball site there is.

Thanks. I will check. Just trying to get ideas on what to do when you coach a team in the Northeast; have no indoor mounds and no bullpen.
Just the mound on the game field.

Build one. There are million’s of plans available.

What I used to do: I would work on flat ground for a while when I was learning a new pitch or getting the feel of a delivery, but as soon as possible I would get on a mound (which in my day was fifteen inches high) and throw off that. And always with a catcher—and at times that catcher was my pitching coach, who wasn’t half bad as a catcher. He would get behind the plate and catch for me. to see what I was doing.
