Trouble going to left and throwing to 1st

Anyone else have the problem? Idk, it’s weird, but i have a hard time going to my left, off the mound and throwing to first

Are you a lefty or a righty?

And what makes it difficult?

Every good throw starts with good footwork. And that takes lots of practice.

Roger that.

i’m not sure, i guess its throwing hard to home and then making a short throw, its something i’ve always had trouble with.

haha Jon Leiber syndrome

Just gotta relax and throw with a quick motion.

Don’t think about it so much. Just set your feet and step and throw.

If your right-handed, just field the ball, plant your throwing arm leg, and throw chest high to the first baseman–just like pitching from the mound.

If your a lefty, field the ball, spin to your glove hand side, which will allow you to load up on your pitching arm side leg, take a ‘crow-hop’ and throw chest high to the first baseman. Follow through just like pitching from the mound.
The more you practice it–the easier it gets!!!
Good Luck , Bill
