Part observation and part question. My DD has started taking some lessons to get ready for the season and the instructor and ex top pitcher threw some pitches during the session. It looked so effortless; the speed of the ball leaving his hand in comparison of the effort he put into throwing it was really impressive. My first thought other than I wouldnít want to bat against him was wow, how does he do that? What seemed to be the biggest difference was his perfect timing and the slight arm pause at the top of the motion and taking advantage of the weight transfer while the body is coming down during the pitching motion. I have been right next to top D1 pitchers and while they threw fast it just wasnít the same impression of speed I got from him throwing. It really impressed upon me that itís not just the leap and resist against the front leg but an up together and down together like B. Hillhouse likes to say. We use Billís progression of drills to go through but does anyone use anything else specifically to impress upon the young pitcher the importance of the timing of the arm with the weight transfer?
