Posted many times here, there was a show in Japan on Ueno, and more specifically her coach. In it, he repeatedly does this drill:
In trying to distinguish between absolutes and styles, I'm wondering if the role of the glove arm is more vital than I've ever thought? I've heard it mentioned plenty, Coach Pauly does a "pull together" drill, and there's always concern that excessive swim can cause many different problems, but does it go beyond that?
Ueno uses her glove arm in the same circular motion as her throwing arm. As she brings the glove into motion, it nearly reaches her real delt before completing a circle nearly identical to the arm circle of her throwing side.
Considering Ueno is widely considered one of the true elite pitchers (if not best in the world), and she does it without the leverage advantage of some of the 6'+ American's, is the glove side something American coaches have overlooked, or am I just overthinking this looking for some slight advantage that my DD can use to max out her god given talent?
