Keeping your weight back is much more than keeping your weight over your back foot as long as you can.
Pitch location struggles.
The instant you end your front leg lift with your back knee over your back foot, you hurt your pitch location.
Your problem is, with your weight over your back foot, striding becomes the only way to move toward your target.
Unless you find the right stride tempo, your release window will vary, and you can’t know where your pitches will end up.
Supercharge your pitch location.
Your more productive option is to end your front leg lift with your back knee to the second base side of your back foot.
From this back knee position, once you extend your glove hand out and away from your body, your lower body produces the pitch location you expect.
Your footwork determines your back knee position.
Keeping your back knee to the second base side of your back foot isn’t something you do, it’s something that happens.
Through a well-planned combination of foot placements, knee bends, and front leg lifts, your improved back knee position gets your lower body to instantly and repeatedly locate many more of your pitches.
