I have heard coaches telling their pitchers that after they throw the ball home, they must square up to home plate so they are in a good fielding position.
But on the other hand, I have heard pitching coaches telling pitchers that if you square up after you throw the ball, the pitcher is losing a couple MPH off his pitch rather then just let it go loose and fall of the mound.
Once pitching coach said if a pitcher does his job right, the pitcher shouldn’t have to worry about a ball coming back at him. So fall off the mound so the pitcher gets that couple extra mph on his pitch.
What do you guys think?
