Put Your Pitch Location on Automatic

 

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

Few Pitchers regularly send their pitches directly to their intended target, but, when you learn how to locate your pitches, you instantly become a must-have to next-level Teams.

Pitch location just happens. In fact, the amount of effort you put into locating your pitches determines the size of your target area.

Tilted Hips Kill your Pitch Location

End your front leg lift with your hips tilted, and you put a lot of effort into your pitch location.

Ironically, putting a lot of effort into ending your front leg lift with your hips level makes it very likely you end your front leg lift with a hip tilt???

Level Hips Make Your Pitch Location Just Happen

End your front leg lift with your hips level, and your pitch location turns into something that happens and not something you do.

When you learn to manage your movements into your front leg lift, you end your front leg lift with your hips level and, without thinking about it, you can expect your pitches to travel directly into your target.

What Exactly Is an Effective Bullpen?

 

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

The object of any bullpen is to walk away with one physically repeated action that’ll get more pitches to travel directly into your intended target than before your session began.

Keep repeating the action that came out of your bullpen, your actions become a habit, and, forever on, you can count on more pitches to travel directly into your target.

The most effective bullpen take-aways

Obviously, you decide how you want to move, but did you ever realize, your conscious actions can only occur when your body comes out of a point of balance.

Once your body moves out of any balanced position, your subconscious goes to work to get your body back to balance. While your body is getting itself back to balance, you lose conscious control of your movements.

Therefore, the way your body is known to work, when the actions that come out of your bullpen revolve around your foot placements or out of your front leg lift, your bullpen is much more likely to have a permanent and positive impact on your future fastball location.

Coach Skip Optimizes Bullpen Sessions

By supervising both in-person and Zoom-based bullpens, Coach Skip helps you walk away knowing the actions that’ll positively impact your fastball location for the rest of your competitive pitching career.

Not getting as much out of your bullpens as you’d like? Set up a short phone call with Coach Skip.

What Does Using Your Lower Body Mean?

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Play with a rubber band powered, balsa wood toy airplane, and the plane’s rubber band mirrors the twisting force you want to create by ending your stride with your hips and shoulders at opposing angles.

Like the rubber band powers the plane’s propeller, the lower body torque you generate forces the spontaneous whip that sends your fastballs into your target.

One Condition Leads to Lower Body Engagement

To engage your lower body, you must end your front leg lift with your mind thinking you have both feet on the ground.

This lets your upper body activate your hips, ends your stride with your hips and shoulders at opposing angles and creates the torque needed to send your pitches directly into your target.

Miss This Condition and You Hurt Your Location

End your front leg lift with your weight over your back foot, you lock your upper body in place and block your lower body activity.

Without your lower body, you can’t know with any certainty where any one pitch will end up.

Coach Skip Teaches Lower Body Engagement

Coach Skip uses a simple front leg lift maneuver that’ll automatically trigger your lower body to send your fastballs directly into your target.

95% of All Pitchers Can’t Engage Their Lower Body

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.If you’re a Pitcher who fails to precisely manage your front leg lift, you make it physically impossible for you to get your lower body to catapult your fastballs directly into your intended target.

Want Proof?

  1. Both feet on the ground. Stand on the ground and try to rotate your Shoulders. Your Shoulders won’t move until you spin your Hips.
  2. One foot one the ground. Stand on one foot and try to spin your Hips. You can’t move your Hips without first moving your Shoulders.

The Pitching Contradiction

Each motion begins with one foot touching the ground. From one foot, your shoulders move your hips.

Here’s the contradiction … To engage your lower body, while perched on one foot, your body must believe and act like both feet are on the ground.

Coach Skip’s Essential Pitching Hacks Resolve this Contradiction!

When Coach Skip teaches you his essential hacks, even though your body is perched on one foot, he forces your body to believe and act as if your front leg lift has both feet on the ground. From there, he teaches you a trick to force your body to use your hips to drive your fastballs directly into your intended target.

Muscle Memory Wastes Pitching Careers

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Every Elite Pitcher Has a Process.

With a process, you use a series of actions taken in a particular order that, through experience, you expect to send your fastballs into your intended target.

Once mastered, like riding a bike, you go through your delivery without thinking about it.

Muscle Memory Limits Pitching Careers

Without a process, muscle memory becomes your improvement plan of choice, but, have you ever considered that muscle memory doesn’t really exist?

Your muscles don’t have a memory, and your pitching career isn’t long enough for muscle memory to take hold.

If, like Malcolm Gladwell says, it takes roughly 10,000 hours to master a skill, you must work full time (40 hours a week) for 5 years to finetune your muscle memory to the point where you can count on your fastballs to travel directly into your target.

While working on your 10,000 hours, your inability to send your fastballs directly into your target means your competitive pitching career is more likely to come to and end before you finish your 10,000 hours.

Need a Process?

If you rely on muscle memory for improvement, set up a short phone call with Coach Skip to develop a process sure to supercharge your pitching career.

Is Your Front Leg Lift Hurting Your Fastball Location?

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Your base of support is your feet. Your body automatically stabilizes your weight within your base of support and keeps your arms free to move any way you want.

Your Balance Beam Hack

Walk a balance beam and your base of support becomes the balance beam.

To stay on the balance beam, to center your weight over the beam, your mind takes over your arm movements.

Your Hack … Flex your legs, let your knees float outside the balance beam and you fool your mind into thinking your knees are your base of support.

Rate Your Front Leg Lift

Optimal Front Leg Lifts. When you can hold your front leg lift with each knee in line with each shoulder, you fool your mind into thinking your knees are your base of support. Your throwing arm remains free to deliver your fastballs directly into your intended target.

Less Efficient Front Leg Lifts. End your front leg lift with your knees close together, and you’ve lost your base of support. Like the balance beam, when you move down the mound, you use your throwing arm for balance, and you effectively compromise your fastball location.

Upgrade Your Front Leg Lift

If you are struggling to find a way to end your front leg lift with your knees in line with your shoulders, set up a short phone call with Coach Skip.

A Balanced Approach to Fastball Location

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.When you walk a balance beam, as your subconscious fights for balance, you lose control of your arm movements.

When Balance Hurts Your Fastball Location

When you stride out of your front leg lift, similar to the balance beam, your stride means you lose control of your throwing arm path. Your fastball pitch location goes out the window.

Trying to control your fastball location without addressing the cause for your imbalance becomes a fruitless, never-ending battle.

Let Balance Promote Your Fastball Location

End your front leg lift with your weight evenly distributed around your core and, as you move down the mound, your spinning action keeps your body in balance and your arms free to respond to your lower body.

Your spinning action stops when your stride ends. It’s at this point that your throwing action gets your body back to balance and, in the process, automatically sends your fastballs directly into your Catcher’s target.

Discover Balanced Fastball Location

Want to automate your fastball location? Set up a short phone call with Coach Skip.

Help him to understand your pitching goals, your legwork, your movements down the mound and he’ll use this information to tell you how you can supercharge your pitching future.

Hit the Pitching Jackpot

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Your Pitching Career is One Big Bet

Every time you take the mound, you’re betting your pitching career that you can consistently deliver your fastballs directly into a low target.

As you move up the baseball ladder, Opponents become more patient and better trained, the larger your bets become and the more you stand to lose.

Locating Your Pitches Promotes Winning

To locate your pitches, out of your front leg lift, your hand separation triggers a throwing action that sends your fastballs directly into a low target with uncanny accuracy.

Sadly, if you’re like most Pitchers, your sequence out of your front leg lift is reversed. First you stride, then you separate your hands. Your late hand separation means your body uses your throwing arm to keep itself in balance, and, because you delay your throwing arm into release, can’t where any one pitch will end up.

Hedge your bets.

You trust your Coach to manage your throwing action, but if he can’t manage your sequencing as you come out of your front leg lift, you’ll forever be dealt a losing hand!

To discover how simple it is to hit the pitching jackpot (to change your sequencing out of your front leg lift), set up free 15-minute conversation with Coach Skip to talk about next steps.

Is Your Pitching Motion Connected to Your Results?

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Getting your pitches to travel directly into your target is a simple game of “connect the dots”.

If you’re like most Pitchers, you treat your movements as if they were a pile of unrelated dots.

Case in point, you treat your stride, arm slot, front leg lift, foot plant as if they were independent actions, separate dots.

To achieve your Big-League pitching dreams, you must connect your dots.

The Invisible Dot Connector

Your dot connector is invisible. This invisible dot is your body’s urge to keep itself in balance.

Your urge to stay in balance begins tying your motion, your dots, together the instant your front foot comes off the ground.

Your invisible urge to keep your body in balance uses …

– Your foot placements create a dynamically balanced front leg lift,
– Your stable front leg lift keeps your arms free to produce the cascading movements you’re used to seeing, and
–  Forces your body to use your throwing action to get itself back in balance.

A focus on this invisible dot automates your ball release and, consequently, let you expect each pitch to travel directly into your intended target.

Expect to Win

Million$ Pitch Location is Simple

 

Pro Pitching Institute is one of the top 100 baseball blogs on the Internet.Producing Million$ pitch location is a learned skill.

When you know how to end your front leg lift with your weight centered around your core, you’re able to send your throwing hand through a predetermined release window with uncanny certainty.

Words matter.

By telling yourself to place your feet in the right spots, at the top of your front leg lift, your next words center your weight between your knees and keep your glove side free to move the way you want.

Your next command spins your body down the mound and your spinning action turns your pitch location into an expectation.

What Happens When You Spin Down the Mound?

When you spin out of your front leg lift, your spin signals your body to get your front foot back on the ground.

Your front foot hitting the ground stops your lower body rotation, and your twisted posture forces your upper body to send your throwing hand through the same productive, and surprisingly accurate release point.

Simplify Your Pitching

When you use the right foot placements, the right words in the right sequence will produce the Million$ pitching results you need to succeed in a sport built around failure.

Want to simplify your pitching results? Simply set up a free 15-minute conversation to talk about next steps.
