Okay, my brother pitches and he is 11 years old. I know my fair share of pitching mechanics as well. I was just asking is there a drill he can work on to be more accurate besides slowing his pitches down? He has some control but how can he “make pitches” so to speak. He will find out his top speed in a week, but about 6 months ago he threw 56 mph in 3 pitches without being warmed up. I don’t mean to brag about him but he is viewed in his league as the best pitcher, but he’s not. But when his mechanics are how they should be (footstrike, striding instead of stepping, turning his numbers toward the catcher) he is very successful.
If you guys can give me any feedback that would be amazing.
These are his mechanics in a tournament he played in, Grosse Pointe against Grosse Pointe Wood Shores, (they’re one of the best teams) and gave up 2 runs through 2 1/3 with 40 something pitches.
Same video as before, slowed down and zoomed in.
