Hi I’m Branden, 13 years old. I thought you’d find this interesting to look at and inform me of what exactly is happening. My coach is wanting me to stay tall instead of being as low as i am in the picture soon below. I have some downward action on the ball but i’m not having that much. Also i am having some control problems here and there but i think with a tweak in my mechanics i know i can have much faster velocity and much better control. By the way i pitch around mid-seventies. Looking forward to pitching much faster.
i stay tall when lifting my leg as of this picture:
same thing as i am separating my hands and going torward home plate but one i start my stride i get down really low and looks as if i’m lunging and when i’m finishing i usually leave a huge mark on the mound because my foot drags and i’m thinking its because i’m to low? Can you guys give me any help based on these pictures? Thanks, Branden.
