Keeping Your Weight Back is a Specialized Skill

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.

Want to instantly improve your back knee position? Coach Skip is waiting for your call.

Your Starting Position Matters

The Starting Position You Want.

You want to begin your stride with your back knee to the second base side of your back foot..

Do this and you’re very likely to free your throwing arm to react to your stride, get your lower body to automatically, naturally, and repeatedly locate your pitches, keep each Hitter guessing about pitch speed, and use your late-stage ball movement to make reaching base very difficult.

The Starting Position You Have.

If you’re like most Pitchers, you begin your stride with your front foot over or to the home plate side of your back foot.

Let this happen and you’re going to use your throwing arm to balance your stride, lose your lower body, struggle with your pitch location, and can only hope the Opponents you face stay off the bases.

Pitch Location Supplies Direction

Your pitch location tells you about your back knee position as you begin your stride.

By measuring the ratio of pitches you locate against the pitches that miss your target, you accurately measure how often your back knee position allows your lower body to drive your results.

Through persistence, you’ll discover the back knee position needed to succeed in a sport built around failure.

Want to bypass your trial-and-error phase? Coach Skip is waiting for your call.

5-Ways to Make Pitching Fun

 

Pro Pitching Institute

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Pitching is more fun when you teach yourself how to …

  1. Concentrate on your personal scoreboard.
    You control the effort and attitude you put into every pitch, but you can’t control how your opponents respond to each pitch. Stop trying to force your results, accept the results you produce, and pitching becomes more fun.
  2. Ignore Your Inner Voice.
    Your inner voice yells at you. Instead of listening to your inner voice, listen to the whispers you hear about the attitude and effort you put into every pitch.
  3. Stop competing.
    Accept that the other Team is helping you get better. Play your guts out, and, between starts, find ways to make your next outing better than your last.
  4. Think Teamwork.
    Keeping your Team close enough to win and letting your Teammates score the runs your Team needs to win, makes pitching more fun.
  5. Develop a repeatable process.
    A focus on balance supplies you with a process that’ll free your throwing arm to send your pitches where you want, keep the other Team from scoring, and make each outing more enjoyable.

When you take the self-discipline and self-confidence these 5-skills require into your everyday life, the fun you have on the mound becomes a part of your everyday life.

If you like to pitch, but it’s not fun? Coach Skip is waiting for your call.
