Gravity is the elephant in the room!
The reason so many pitches miss your target boils down to one thing … Your Coach allows gravity to use your throwing arm to offset your stride. As a result, you never know with any certainty where any one pitch will end up or, worse yet, when any one pitch will drift over the plate.
Why, when your Coach mismanages gravity, you never know where each pitch is going to end up?
When your Coach allows you to end your front leg lift with your head over your back foot, to move down the mound, your Coach forces you to stride.
As soon as you stride, gravity uses your throwing arm to balance your front leg activity. Until you end your stride and gravity brings your weight back into balance, you give gravity the right to control your throwing arm path.
With gravity controlling your throwing arm path, you can’t know with any certainty where gravity will cause any one pitch to end up.

What we teach. You know how to deliver each pitch directly into your target.
Why, when we teach you how to manage gravity, you command each pitch?
A combination of foot placements, back knee positioning and core activation force gravity to end your front leg lift with their weight balanced between their knees.
Starting your motion from this balanced position forces gravity to use your throwing path to get back in balance. Consequently, your results become a by-product of gravity taking your throwing hand through a very sustainable and extremely productive release window.
