    So.....Peel or Roll-over....why is one better then the other?

    You really are out there coach fp. You clearly only pay attention to yourself. It was a useful enough drill to help get her college paid for whether it works for you or not. I for one appreciate the balls it takes to post a video on here, thanks sluggers, and please thank your daughter also!

    ffs, that is why I said arguably…..were not talking about rise balls….stay on topic. the notion that peel drops are thrown without IR is silly.

    How do I find the perfect release point????

    Thanks Rick! I have waited a long time for perfect circle to say something worth while.....:D simple but good advice......like shooting a bow and arrow. Thanks PC!

    A peel drop in arguably the fastest pitch a pitcher can throw, my guess is it has the most complete IR. My other guess is the only pitch thrown with no IR is maybe a certain style of change up. No IR = slow.

    interesting conversation with a couple of pitchers' dads

    I was helping out with the highschoolers in the cage the other night and was talking with another dad who has been around baseball and softball 3 times as long as me. His daughter is turning into a freak hitter, we were discussing another kids swing and he says she needs to start turning on the...

    University Of Montana First Recruits

    Small world, as an 8th grader she pitched for her high school team. WIAA allows 8th graders to play up if the highschool cannot field a team from grades 9-12. The first time I saw her pitch was the state tournament for 3rd and 4th against my daughters school. She led them to a win as an 8th...

    Toe Drag Issues with Push Foot

    I tend to agree with starsnuffer on the footwork thing but I have nothing for you on that. From the knees up she seems to have a lot of good things going on...Natural IR, brush interference (right mr. Pauly?) Try to promote a little bend in her arm. IMPO stop the hellow elbow thing while she is...

    coach telling DD to "roll the wrists"

    I agree that 10 second snippit is a terrible demonstration. forward and up like going up a ramp is not what this guy is demonstrating at all. Everything can be perverted. There is no way you cannot go forward slightly. even up and forward is still forward.

    coach telling DD to "roll the wrists"

    You mean moving your elbow in a line 2 feet toward the pitcher? I agree. Or the fact that he's not even holding onto the bat:confused: I mean....hows that going to work? he must be stupid.

    What you wish you knew then....

    I wish I new that by trying to treat every player the same, that the better players will eventually leave for a more competative atmosphere. And nice coaches can win provided they are the meanest of the nice coaches in the tournament.

    coach telling DD to "roll the wrists"

    Is pujols playing slowpitch in that gif? As Howard Carrier would say....make a good first move....the lead elbow should start forward then up, like going up a ramp. I believe basically what ffs is saying....the height of the elbow depends on the pitch location... but the ramp analogy has...

    interference or obstruction?

    When a fielder, a runner and the ball all meet at the same time and a collision is unavoidable it is commonly called a "wreck". Has any blue on here ever made that call? or is it always int. or obs?

    6year old drills???

    Poor kid....no offense. Take her fishing or to a movie. Save the drills for the ripe old age of 8.
