How does the Glove Tuck effect a pitcher?


#1

Ive been having a problem with my glove tuck lately and I feel its making me throw less hard. How much torque does a good glove pull create and how many mph could i add from fixing it? Please reply with drills to help with this. Thank you. Any feedback about the glove tuck is welcome

Pulling the glove usually leads to early shoulder rotation which reduces hip and shoulder separation and, therefore, velocity. Once you’ve extended the glove out front to a good “opposite & equal” position, turn it over and re-position it somewhere in front of your torso (or, somewhere over the front foot) and stabilize it there while body moves towards glove.

Thank you. I understand it kind of but do you think theres any way you could put it in simpler terms? I get the general idea of it but im still confused after the reading on what it is im supposed to do
