A Balanced Approach to Fastball Location

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.When you walk a balance beam, as your subconscious fights for balance, you lose control of your arm movements.

When Balance Hurts Your Fastball Location

When you stride out of your front leg lift, similar to the balance beam, your stride means you lose control of your throwing arm path. Your fastball pitch location goes out the window.

Trying to control your fastball location without addressing the cause for your imbalance becomes a fruitless, never-ending battle.

Let Balance Promote Your Fastball Location

End your front leg lift with your weight evenly distributed around your core and, as you move down the mound, your spinning action keeps your body in balance and your arms free to respond to your lower body.

Your spinning action stops when your stride ends. It’s at this point that your throwing action gets your body back to balance and, in the process, automatically sends your fastballs directly into your Catcher’s target.

Hit the Pitching Jackpot

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Your Pitching Career is One Big Bet

Every time you take the mound, you’re betting your pitching career that you can consistently deliver your fastballs directly into a low target.

As you move up the baseball ladder, Opponents become more patient and better trained, the larger your bets become and the more you stand to lose.

Locating Your Pitches Promotes Winning

To locate your pitches, out of your front leg lift, your hand separation triggers a throwing action that sends your fastballs directly into a low target with uncanny accuracy.

Sadly, if you’re like most Pitchers, your sequence out of your front leg lift is reversed. First you stride, then you separate your hands. Your late hand separation means your body uses your throwing arm to keep itself in balance, and, because you delay your throwing arm into release, can’t where any one pitch will end up.

Hedge your bets.

You trust your Coach to manage your throwing action, but if he can’t manage your sequencing as you come out of your front leg lift, you’ll forever be dealt a losing hand!

To discover how simple it is to hit the pitching jackpot (to change your sequencing out of your front leg lift), set up free 15-minute conversation with Coach Skip to talk about next steps.

Is Your Pitching Motion Connected to Your Results?

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Getting your pitches to travel directly into your target is a simple game of “connect the dots”.

If you’re like most Pitchers, you treat your movements as if they were a pile of unrelated dots.

Case in point, you treat your stride, arm slot, front leg lift, foot plant as if they were independent actions, separate dots.

To achieve your Big-League pitching dreams, you must connect your dots.

The Invisible Dot Connector

Your dot connector is invisible. This invisible dot is your body’s urge to keep itself in balance.

Your urge to stay in balance begins tying your motion, your dots, together the instant your front foot comes off the ground.

Your invisible urge to keep your body in balance uses …

– Your foot placements create a dynamically balanced front leg lift,
– Your stable front leg lift keeps your arms free to produce the cascading movements you’re used to seeing, and
–  Forces your body to use your throwing action to get itself back in balance.

A focus on this invisible dot automates your ball release and, consequently, let you expect each pitch to travel directly into your intended target.

Expect to Win

Million$ Pitch Location is Simple

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Producing Million$ pitch location is a learned skill.

When you know how to end your front leg lift with your weight centered around your core, you’re able to send your throwing hand through a predetermined release window with uncanny certainty.

Words matter.

By telling yourself to place your feet in the right spots, at the top of your front leg lift, your next words center your weight between your knees and keep your glove side free to move the way you want.

Your next command spins your body down the mound and your spinning action turns your pitch location into an expectation.

What Happens When You Spin Down the Mound?

When you spin out of your front leg lift, your spin signals your body to get your front foot back on the ground.

Your front foot hitting the ground stops your lower body rotation, and your twisted posture forces your upper body to send your throwing hand through the same productive, and surprisingly accurate release point.

Simplify Your Pitching

When you use the right foot placements, the right words in the right sequence will produce the Million$ pitching results you need to succeed in a sport built around failure.
