[quote=“singtall”]i’m not a pro but i’ll give my opinion for what it’s worth.
the last video does look like an attempt to throw like Lincecum (or stride too far). the thing that worries me the most is his lack of fielding position after he throws. the body rotation just doesn’t stop. i would expect the body to convert the rotation into forward motion and the lower body to stabilize.
both me and my son had that same problem when we worked on stride length. when we stride too long we both ended up sideways or even with our butt towards the batter after release.
there seems to be a point where you just feel like you’re gliding and you’re along for the ride and things start working correctly. we both found a place where we are feeling like it doesn’t take much effort to throw hard and accurate anymore. of course we could be completely missing it. lol. i posted some videos of both me and my son so you can decide if we’re clueless. check out Ross J Johnson and Nicolas Johnson and gimme your thoughts.
on the good side: your boy is throwing some heat for his age! i only hope my son does as well.[/quote]
The reason we dont teach ending in a fielding postition is because if we arrest the rotation we feel the rotation=volicity. (Paul Nyman)
The clips show me that there is not much drive from the back side and loss of power, not much of a finish. This is why we sacrifice a little feilding position for volicity. Clips have good things I would just work on the finish either fielding or rotional.
