I’ve just started working with a young (12yo) pitcher who has a problem I’ve never encountered before. He drags his pivot foot throughout his entire delivery so that his back leg never comes up off the ground in any kind of followthrough.
I’ve shown him videos of MLB pitchers and explained the importance of the leg in the followthrough, but he’s having a hard time changing the habit. He can correct it when playing catch, but reverts once he gets back into a full pitching motion.
Has anyone encountered this before, and do you have any drills that are effective in correcting it? I’m about to start tying a bungee around his ankle and yanking it after he releases the ball! :lol:
