Wrist Snap Down?

I always hear pitching coaches at the younger ages telling their pitchers to snap down. Does this actually help you?

your supposed to keep your palm up on a fastball
so idk

Well , if your looking for a downward action, duh, you should snap down.

But if your trying to just throw a fastball to locate, just keep your palm

up just like kelvinp said.

Yes. JMHO.

Unless some other context is provided, I would be wondering what the issue is for which “snapping down” would be the fix.

I doubt that this would be considered a “teach” in most circles. I did teach this to my son to encourage a good finish and to increase the backspin on the ball.
