12 years old. 4’11" 89 lbs. Throwing 55-57 on Bushnell gun. Has hit 60 a few times. Here’s the problem:
Up until footplant, he looks pretty good. I have done video and slowed it down and compared to some of your more “Textbook” type pitchers. To the untrained eye (mine) he looks good ALMOST until release. His PAS leg is trying to come off the ground instead of dragging his toe. Almost immediately at release (Maybe a little before) his head begins to tilt along with his shoulders. From here his leg comes off the ground and begins to come around instead of up, pause and then around. He ends up his follow through with his body at a 45 degree angle to the left, head down and HUNCHED over at the shoulders. He seems to have no follow through to amount to much. Another MAJOR problem is that his forearm begins to supinate down, his elbow seems to stop after release and his hand keeps going so at some point he ends up with his arm facing almost straight down at a 90 degree angle. Almost like he is trying to throw a screwball instead of a fastball. I don’t think he suddenly just does all these things wrong. I think he is doing something MAJOR wrong early on and it just begins to show up after footplant. All help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Also, I have 2 videos I can post but I don’t know how to put them on. I have them on an sd card. I have read the instruction on the board but I’m not real good with this computer stuff yet.
