What Fastball Command Isn’t

Fastball command isn’t about your throwing action … it’s about your front leg lift.

Without a balanced front leg lift, your foot plant is gravity driven, and your ball goes within your target area, but never into your target as often as you need.

What Fastball Command Is

The most important action is your balanced front leg lift.

Fastball command comes from producing a balanced front leg lift, a well-managed glove hand action, and a well-timed throwing arm trigger.


Unable to get your balance into your front leg lift, 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.
