Lefty pick off


#1

Hey guys im a lefty and my pick off move is just horrendous - very easy to pick up on…any one have any suggestions on how to greatly improve my move? thanks

Well one thing that can help, is never to look at the plate, or at the runner, before you start your stretch. Find something to look at in between the home plate, and 1st. If your going home, raise your leg, then look home. If your going to first, raise, and pick off. More effective than just looking at home or at the runner.

Do a google search of Coach Mike Maack, and his teaching on the “Move.” He is the head coach at Prestonwood Academy, and specializes in teaching the LHP a good pick-off move to 1st.
