Aha. Someone else who needs to know about “THE SECRET”.
I learned it many moons ago, when I used to go to the original Yankee Stadium and watch the pitchers in pregame practice. I watched the Yanks’ Big Three pitching rotation, and I saw what they were doing and how they were doing it. They were all driving off the lower half of the body, using the legs, the hips and the torso in one continuous motion to create a nonstop flow of energy all the way up through the body to the shoulder and arm, all the way to the fingertips, thus generating more power behind their pitches so they could throw harder and faster with less effort; those guys knew that the use of the lower body is the real key to a pitcher’s power. I made a note of this and started working on it on my own—with spectacular results. And later on, one of them—Eddie Lopat, who became my de facto pitching coach for almost four seasons—helped me refine this and other moves and turned me into a devastating sidearmer with a lethal crossfire.
A good place to start would be the so-called “Hershiser” drill, which aims at getting the hips fully involved. No special equipment is needed, just a fence
or a wall. Remember that the hips are the connection between the two halves of the body, and once that connection is established you can go on from there. Best of luck! :idea:
