Hi all, last night I pitched against one of the top teams in my league (Shepaug Valley, one of the most succesful programs in Connecticut).
The first inning was not very good, my command was off because I was getting my arm going to late in my delivery, but after I fixed that, they didn’t touch me. Heres a video from my second inning of pitching. It was kind of a 1-2-3, because there was a ball my rightfielder should have caught that fell, followed by a DP, and then a K.
Two things I am aware I do wrong-
1-Obviously, I fly off the the side of the mound after I release the pitch, its something I constantly battle. I am able to pitch fine with it, but I
would eventually like to land in a better position.
2-I reverse rotate my shoulder a bit, which I know could possibly hurt my arm. I don’t know if its as bad as my highschool coach makes it seem to be though, because it’s not like I am parallel with 3rd when I reach back. I rotate my entire upper body towards second base a little bit, which makes a little reverse rotation seem like a lot when viewing from home plate.
Also, the only pitches I threw this inning were 4-Seam fastballs and Curves, just to clear things up.
