“Behavior Driven Pitchers” Excel

“Behavior Driven Pitchers’” hand separations initiate their stride, their stride prompts their throwing action and their throwing action gets each pitch to travel directly into their intended target.

“Behavior Driven Pitchers” trust their body to help them succeed in a sport build around failure.

So much so that when a “Behavior Driven Pitcher” misses their target over the plate, they know their body puts so much late stage ball movement on the pitch that even professional Hitters will struggle to drive the ball.

“Results Driven Pitchers” Hope to Excel

As “Results Driven Pitchers” move down the mound, they use their throwing arm to keep their body in balance.

“Results Driven Pitchers” fail to realize or don’t want to accept the fact that once they begin to move down the mound, they’ve lost control of their throwing arm path.

Consequently, “Results Driven Pitchers” waste their valuable time trying to find a throwing arm path (they can’t control) to produce the results they want.

Much like a dog chasing his tail, if you’re a “Results Driven Pitcher”, until you change your focus from your results to your behaviors, your pitching career goes in circles.

Balance

It’s a known fact that your body is either in balance or moving to get itself back in balance.

When you push off the rubber, you drive down the mound, use your throwing arm for balance, and lose control of your throwing arm into your release.

There’s another, more effective, pitching model.

The Best Pitchers Rotate Down the Mound and Use their Throwing Action to Get Back in Balance 

Rotating down the mound occurs as a result of you letting “your lower body” drive your motion.

  • An Alternate Storyline – Place a light weight on the end of a string, and slowly twirl the weight around your hand. Every time the weight completes a circle, the weight comes through the same spot and, even with a minimal hand action, produces so much energy that you’d think twice about putting your hand in the weight’s path.
  • The Pitching Elements within This Storyline
    – The string represents your throwing arm.
    – Your forearm and hand relate to your core.
    – The weight coming through the same spot all the time symbolizes your release window.
    – The energy the weight generates relates to your throwing arm whip
  • Rotating Down the Motion – When you end your front leg lift with an upright core, you can open your front shoulder to begin your rotation down the mound.
    Your front shoulder spin whips your throwing hand through the same spot on every pitch.
    Duplicate your front leg lift from one pitch to the next and you can expect your throwing arm to whip your pitches into your intended target.
  • Where can you see this? – Watch how frequently a Big-League Pitcher at the top of the Team’s depth chart delivers their pitches into their intended target.

If you move down the mound, can’t know where any one pitch will end, then let’s talk.
