[quote=“Roger”]Overall, looks pretty good. I don’t see any major problems. But I did notice the following:
(1) It looks like you stride to the closed side. You also lean to the glove side at release. I believe these are related. Specifically, I feel the posture change is an attempt to get the upper body back in line with the target after having strided to the closed side. You can minimize the posture change by starting on the left side of the rubber. Otherwise, you need to change the direction of your stride. One way to do that is to get your hips going sooner to commit your weight in the direction of the
(2) You have a rather wide stance when you pitch from the stretch. This makes you slower to the plate because your first motion is a sizeable weight shift onto the back leg. In other words, you go back before you go forward. This may slow down your move to 1B too.[/quote]
So I should stride more towards the left handers batting box?
and about the wide stance from the strech it acually helps my time to the plate by reducing my leg kick. A couple of times this year runners acually stopped running and went back towards first because they had such a bad jump, then we’d just get them out eventually in a hot box.
Where in the motion is my posture change?
Thanks for the replies
