As ive stated in several other threads im coming off of Tommy John and thought im regaining my velocity and control im not where i need to be. I only top out several times through the game whereas i used to be able to consistantly jump up the velocity on 2-2 counts and such things as that.
A pitching coach that saw me pitch on more than several occasions in high school noticed some flas in my pitching notably not hitting a good balance point and sometimes slinging the ball.
My question is, he gave me a drill he thought might help at least to stop slinging and to just start coming through the ball and straight towards the plate because i tend to fall of to 3rd base (left handed). It is the up and over drill that i know Tom House teaches. For those of you who arent sure its when you start off the back of the mound and cross over your feet then as you release the ball you have moved forward so you are on the rubber just as pitching. He said if i didnt like attempting this on the mound i could just do it on flat ground especially. He specified its not just long toss but really trying to get behind the ball and come through it and finish ing hard. Sorry this is so long, anyone have any thoughts?
