Level Hips Promote Good Results

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

The Cause:

Uneven hips happen when your front heel is placed more than a baseball width away from your back heel.

Your positioning causes your front leg to naturally swing behind your front hip as you lift it and your position tilts your hips.

The Effect:

You can only throw effectively with level hips.

To achieve the level position needed for an accurate throw, uneven hips force your body to make balance adjustments.

These adjustments disrupt the natural throwing motion, affect accuracy, and hurt consistency.

The Solution:

Placing your front and back heels within a baseball width of each other encourages your front leg to lift directly towards your hip, keeps your hips level, and eliminates the need for balance adjustments.

With level hips, your throwing arm and stride work together more efficiently, leading to improved accuracy and a greater consistency in throwing the ball to your target with uncanny regularity.

In essence, starting with heels close together promotes a natural throwing motion with level hips, resulting in better throws.
