How to "stretch" out when throwing?


#1

I’ve heard a lot of this from different coaches, and when looking at old threads on here I’ve seen it mentioned. Can anyone explain what this is/how to do it?

Start close to your throwing partner and take a step back every throw or every other throw.

Sorry, couldn’t help myself!

I think that’s the Red Sox 3rd baseman this season.

So nothing is changed? You don’t do anything different with your arm? Even release point?

Wow, talk about two pictures that could have the heading, “Separated at birth.” It’s uncanny.

I like to do exactly like Steven says. I take it gradually out to 90 feet, then work my way back in to the mound in about 20 throws (total from start to finish). By then I’m pretty warm and ready to try adjusting from high to low in the zone from the bullpen mound.

On the positive side, great glove side stabilization.
