    Accutane and Shoulder pain

    I agree that it took me about 3 months. Up until that point it was painful to wash my hair or even put a shirt on. I took a lot of fish oil, vitamin E, as well as started using lotion which I had never had to do, oh and I couldn’t live without chapstick. The only thing that i feel had longer...

    Accutane and Shoulder pain

    I have first hand experience with this, with the exception that I was an adult when I took acutane. I can honestly say the effects that it had on my body were surprisingly harsh. Without getting into to much detail and just to address your concern, I had extreme joint pain to the point that I...

    When to play music between innings?

    I’m going to go with never. My opinion that doesn’t count is that it comes off as bush league cheesy (especially player name announcement) and seems to be a way for parents/coaches to further implement themselves into the girls game. Again my opinion but to each their own and I’ve never...

    Timing issues

    I do think that may be some of the issue. Some of them are jumping up and out and the arm is getting around well before there can be any front side resistance.

    Timing issues

    Those are exactly what we are exactly the things we are seeing. We are also seeing two of them really want to rotate their hand over the top at release for some reason. What does TTL stand for?

    Timing issues

    The head coach of our team and myself have started to work with a couple of the girls on the team in regards to IR. All 4 were taught HE, clear the hips, etc. Obviously there are a lot of challenges but this place has offered a ton of help and just showing the girls many of the videos from here...

    Front Side Resistance

    From watching video of my daughter this seems to be a huge issue hampering her timing and IR. Are there any drills that will help with this. I saw someone refer to push back drills, what are those? Thanks in advance for the help.

    IR pitching coaches

    Absolutely thank you so much for the responses. We are going to contact a couple of the instructors and see what fits best. We have some quality pitchers in our area and I would love to see them all get proper instruction.

    IR pitching coaches

    Hillhouse, Thank you for the response. It's actually your videos that started me questioning what was being taught. We do have a facility and at minimum there are at least 4 girls from 11u to 16u looking for an IR coach.

    IR pitching coaches

    NEO is Northeastern Ohio. Sorry for that. I did start to work with her a bout a month ago. It has already shown improvement. But there are a couple of issues. 1) it is hard for me to pick up on the nuances while catching. 2) I see several flaws in her pitch according to this site but have not...

    IR pitching coaches

    Thank you everyone for the replies. Looks like Tincher or associate may be our only option. Not that close to us but worth checking out. We have been to several coaches and they all teach HE and straight arm ball back pitching. A sticky could help eliminate a lot of R&D time and expenses. Thanks...

    IR pitching coaches

    Sorry in advance if this has already been ask. Is there a list or sticky that list pitching coaches that teach internal rotation? We live is NEO and would really like to find a coach that teaches something closer to IR instead of HE.
