    Any thoughts on rolling the change up? To get some break to it.

    That is a nice pitch.


    Only comment I will make is that it appears she showing down, should be like fastball.

    Appears to be a nice off-speed drop curve to me--a nice pitch.

    My DD started pulling her hand up some, sorta like hello elbow finish but not as dramatic and her change up started dropping off the table.

    A lot to like there...it would be interesting to see her maybe spot a fast ball or drop whatever she is throwing for speed. One for speed differential and two for arm speed comparison...but hey like others said nice looking pitch.

    That's what we're working on. But, she's not quite there, would like to see her get her fingers more on the side of the ball at release. Would take off some speed, and put some down and away spin on the ball

    Nice pitch. Get your DD to work on throwing it backdoor and it will deadly.
