When landing


#1

Is your plant foot suppose to be pointing home or to 3rd?


#2

Towards Home!

You have got to focus on generating more momentum towards home.

Okay… Thanks that’s what I thought… I was a lil confused after reading one of Steven’s blogs and thats why I asked.


#4

doesnt really matter either way. nolan ryan says to point it to 3rd and so do many others, but other people point to home. all a matter of preferance.


#5

A certain amount of variation from dead center (i.e. pointing directly at home plate) is usually considered acceptable by most folks. But there is such a thing as too much variation. Open up too much and the hips may open early. Stay closed off to much and you can block off hip rotation.


#6

The main thing to remember is to not open your foot towards home TOO early, otherwise you front side will pull out.


#7

Either way, whatever you do, don’t land on your heel and don’t ever let the toe of your foot face the opposite base side of your arm.


#8

I usually just have my foot face my target, toes to where I want the ball.
