I have been told by many coaches that I sandwich my leg so i “lower my height on the mound” and therefore lose velocity.
I totally realize this is true but for me i feel like i have better mechanics (leading with my hip and keeping my shoulders closed) when i sandwich. For some reason its harder to do this while I stand tall. Maybe i just need to keep practicing the right mechanics while standing tall…but i was just wondering how much sandwiching really affects velocity and if its alright if i keep doing it because i feel more comfortable??
