I figure it’s probably time to start one of these. First some background:
As of 3/27/14:
Position: Pitcher, Catcher
Speed: Avg. 68-70 a couple months ago, need to get a new reading.
Developing shuuto (basically reverse slider)
My short-term goals are to build my mechanics and strength to throw low 80s by the start of next year and to phase out of being a catcher and become either a PO or P/3B.
Long term I want to become one of if not the best pitcher on varsity my junior/senior year and hopefully play college ball.
I think I’m going to be starting a program from Tread Athletics aka Ben aka LankyLefty on these forums. I’ll try to post some sort of weekly record on this thread to document. I’ll try to post a video of my pitching motion on here within a couple days. I think I need to work on leading with the hip and hip-shoulder separation mostly, and trying to be more explosive.
