Ok Start off I'm staying in the grey, not meaning to attack anyone
Newbie: Did that site happen to be pitching.com or another site written by Dick Mills.
While originally a fan of his, around 2001, I feel much differently today.
He has actually changed his theories from when he began. Main thing is he says he's a "rebel" but a lot of his theories have been dispproven with solid studies.
I wish I had free pitching article he wrote, Unless something random got planted in my mind, I would've swarn he said LONGTOSS, longtoss longtoss.
Like I said I'm not picking sides
I actually read Mr. Mill's blog and have put some of his theories to work. But like a lot of instruction "for sale" you have to decide what you think is the right way, and what you are comfortable with"
Back more to the throwing issue. Two prime examples of just throwing to get stronger:
Neighbor: began baseball late, and has been throwing a lot past year, arm strenght obviously better
Little brother: for the first year, will go out and throw/pitch on a consistent basis, he's already seeing better control and velocity.
