    What are we missing?

    Also A. Need compression of upper arm B. Brush of the forearm on the hip C. Probate the lower arm D. A little more bend in the arm I would work on brush swinging back and coming forward and then again at release. When the ball comes over the top it should be about two ball width away from your...

    Teacherman? and fastpitch

    Someone mentioned it earlier. She gets a good stretch but then sometimes has a second stretch. When hot only one stretch. Timing not a stretch problem, IMO. I noticed today that she tends to let her top hand wrist go limp/down at contact. Palm up- if she pointed her fingers towards the...

    What are we missing?

    IMO 1. swing back goes behind her (towards 1st) 2. When coming forward the ball is to far away from the hip 3. Ball goes over her head This causes her to bang her arm instead of brush. 4. Leading with the pinky, which is great but fingers are staying under the ball and not getting behind it...

    Have not studied TM a lot but I think, he talks about forward movement while still loaded in the back hip. Foot down is not something he teaches. I think he talks about switching the foot down.

    What I was looking for. Thanks! Had seen bits and pieces of the information. Would loading once the hands get to three o’clock be a starting point for softball? Understand not an absolute

    Yes sir but do it with 3 plates. She kills it normally off me.

    Teacherman? and fastpitch

    At times she breaks down really bad and at times really good. Some days she starts so late it unbelievable in games and the same pitcher the next weekend hits everything straight pull. I have a friend that has one of the better pitches in our area. Lives a couple of hours away and my daughter...

    Not exactly but she kills the ball doing the three plate drill. She can time me is my thought

    Have always worked from the loaded position but have made more of an emphasis lately. At times she has one of the shortest powerful swings for her size. At other times her swing is long and loopy.

    It looks like she gets locked into a speed and can’t adjust that day. Pull hitter that has days where she is late. Speed and really slow gives her issues. When hot, she’s hot. She’s 14 and 52-56 she hits fairly consistent. If you move out of that range she either great or terrible and tends to...

    Gator bait Was always simple for me. Be on time on deck and that was pretty much it. Start earlier or later. That concept seems to go in one ear and out the other for her.

    Since COVID her load doesn’t look consistent. That’s why I’m trying to help her figure out a starting point. Some of it is mental. When going good she’s a tuff out. When bad she can’t hit BP

    Teacherman? and fastpitch

    if you jack a pitching machine up to 62 and she hits off of it for a day, she kills the ball. Foot down way early and she is strong. When hitting live she is late. I was always the opposite

    Teacherman? and fastpitch

    She was killing the ball and then Covid came. Moved to a new team and they broke out the pitching machine and before I knew it she went no stride. Very little movement and can’t find the before rhythm. Very good point. I’m not against a pitching machine but I always had more trouble hitting off...

    Teacherman? and fastpitch

    Timing a moving ball either way... Your first job is to time the pitcher. Then you time the ball. Doesn't matter if it is baseball or fastpitch. I’m asking how would TM time a fastpitch pitcher. Me as a player timing was never an issue. My athletic ability was my major problem. No way I...
