(2) You back foot drag line finishes to the throwing arm side so I’d move you to the glove side of the rubber. Getting your drag line to end on the centerline of the rubber will help avoid postural issues at release.[/quote]
I think it’s amazing that you can tell that from that angle on a bad quality video. My coach thinks that the far right for a righty is really important since it creates a much better angle when facing rh batters, so today we worked on stepping directly towards (or a little closed) home in my pen. I’ve never had as much command on the outside as I did today.
*You never know who you can trust on these forums but you (and some others) seem to reallllly know what you’re talking about. Thanks.
Does anybody see anything that could potentially be harmful? Particularly the elbow.
Your speed seems to be very good so I don’t think you need to throw harder, work on taking 10 mph off the fastball for a great change up.[/quote]
I cruise in the high 70’s, sometimes low 80’s but when I said “throwing really hard” I meant the physical effort put into the pitch, I know not to throw hard with just the arm. Should I go all out or pace myself?
And of course, is there an efficient way that I could add noticeable velocity other than reps and throwing? I’m thinking something with shoulder separation or weight transfer timing but I dunno.
