For the last 2 weeks or so I’ve been studying my mechanics and trying to improve. I’ve already noticed several things with my own eyes but thought I could use the help of some of you.
I never have shoulder or elbow pain but usually get a very numbing type pain on the top part of my forearm. After studying some of Chris O’s pdf’s I’ve noticed that all major league pitchers break the ball out of their glove and then bring it down their leg and move it away from their body then bring it up to throw. After studying myself I’ve noticed that I bring the ball down to an “upside down L” and never take it away from my body, I just bring it back up when I throw. I’m guessing this could be where my forearm pain comes from. I looks like my arm is taking tremendous force coming back up that quickly.
I havn’t been clocked anytime recently but I’m guessing I’m throwing 83~. Thats just a guess… It seems like its going pretty fast but I don’t want to get my hopes up so I’ll say 83. I know I can improve my velocity though.
I have a video clip of me pitching from a side view. I’ve also slowed it down to 50% speed to help analyze it.
I’m 6’3 if thats of any use.

Thanks for taking the time to look.
