here is Nicolas doing some “couch throwing” after working on his mechanics today. he learned to “scap load”, keep more shoulder/hip separation, release out front instead of high above his head, break his hands later and be more fluid in general. whew! too many changes in a short time, but he really works hard to be his best.
i can’t thank you guys enough. he learned many of these things from all of your suggestions. the final icing on his cake happened tonight as we watched the end of the yankees vs rays game. i had him watch the pitcher’s late hand break and how fast his arm moved at the last minute. Nic tried to mimic those moves and i knew it looked different enough to record and look at.
he matched his own speed record by throwing at 48mph consistently (instead of just once) and broke his speed record by throwing 49mph. yep, he’s happy.
