Awesome! Thanks, lefty. I’ll be sure to write this down on my list for our next pitching practice. When he plants the lead foot with more authority does it become the primary weight bearing leg with the rear driving leg just along for the ride?
You see many pitchers finish with that rear driving leg raised in the air, sometimes it’s the highest body part before it’s brought back down to completely finish the pitch. Is that just a natural movement that occurs from the force of the body moving forward and then the downward movement of the torso for the release or is that a purposeful movement to transfer more weight/force to the front leg?
Sorry for the lack of appropriate terminology! When I played it was a LOT less scientific and my dad was obsessed with catching fish, not baseball!
