Command Requires an Open Front Shoulder


Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.

Do you know an open front shoulder at foot strike gets your lower body to send your pitches directly into your target?

A Closed Front Shoulder

If you’re like most pitchers you currently create an imbalance, your land your stride with your front shoulder closed to your target, and essentially don’t know where the ball will end up.

An Open Front Shoulder

On the other hand, when you place your feet one baseball width apart and lift your front leg straight up, you’re able to let your glove arm take over your motion.

Your glove arm opens your hips, your hips begin your throwing action, and your ball goes where you want with one motion and one result … into your target.


Unable to balance your motion, feel free to use my do-it-yourself pitching program or my in-person, South Jersey pitching sessions to improve your motion.

Until next time, I’m Coach Skip telling you pitch location is coachable.
