Proper pitching mechanics


#1

Hey everyone, I’m a position player/pitcher, I’ve never had any formal pitching advice and do not have the slightest clue how to pitch, I throw mid 70’s and my accuracy is horrible. Could you guys help me learn how to throw with proper mechanics? I can’t upload a video of me throwing because I don’t have a camera yet but will soon. Thanks.

Hey lefthander,

Welcome to the forum. What year are you? There are some articles you can get to from the articles tab at the top of the page. These will hep you get started. As soon as you get some video (You can take pretty good video with just a smartphone, just need to be close), people will be glad to help you make any adjustments you need.

Good luck,

Ted
