After using a number of different drills (back leg bend, collapsing the front knee, extending the stride, backside follow-through after maximum external rotation, extending the release point, etc.) with a couple of my pitchers, I’m still having trouble getting them to keep their pitches down in the strike zone.
They run & complete exercise drills daily (10 90’ sprints, 500 jump ropes, the day before they throw – 5 “field laps” only, followed by a complete analgesic cream rubdown of the throwing arm & shoulder (which is then wrapped) and no throwing the day after. They use exercise cords, “Jobe” weight (5 lbs) drills, 300 jump ropes, 100 “grip-squeezes” per hand, 10 minutes on the exercise bicycle & 10 90’ sprints on the other days) so their leg strength/arm strength doesn’t appear to be an issue.
Would appreciate hearing from any coaches/instructors out there who have experienced a similar problem and what drills or exercises they used to resolve it.
