[quote=“Chris O’Leary”][quote=“carazymcmahon”]Today at practice my pitching coach told me to stop tucking my glove because it causes balance issues (which I have), but im not so sure where I should put it since thats how I’ve always done it.
Also, should I work on this during my next outting or just practice until I do it consitently?[/quote]
This sounds like bad advice.[/quote]

Gotta do better than a drive-by comment without a reasonable explanation in my opinion.
Sounds like the coach wants you to correct your balance issues, and there are many reasons for an imbalance. One of them is when you pull the glove hand down toward your hip in an attempt to create a more explosive shoulder turn. This tends to result in falling off the mound to the glove side, and often leaving the ball up in the zone. However, it’s really not possible to diagnose anything without seeing what you’re doing.
What I would like to see is a more complete explanation of what you discussed with your coach, what he said specifically, and either what you don’t understand or why you disagree. Otherwise its like arguing with your reflection. It might make you feel good, but it gets you nowhere.
