Please let me know what you think are the biggest things to fix with my daughter pitching form. She is a 9U player and there is certainly a lot to work on.
Things that I see are that she leaps on both pitches. On the first pitch she is pretty hunched over with her top half leaning too much towards third base, on the second pitch she finishes better and is more upright. We have been working pretty hard on getting her to pitch taller or more upright without leaning towards the catcher when she finishes. She also shoots her butt out towards first sometimes like in the first pitch of the video.
Some of the other things that I see is that her stride foot is landing pointing towards third base too much, I would rather see her stride foot pointing more towards the catcher. Also she does not finish the pitch very well with her back leg, it just looks like it is getting left behind, and does not finish knee to knee.
She has a pitching instructor who certainly pitches with IR mechanics, and teaches IR mechanics, she just uses a little different terminology. I wish the video was a little better quality that I could see her hand position at 9 o'clock and 6 o'clock. It looks to me like she has the ball pointing towards third at 9 o'clock, I would prefer to see a little more palm up at 9 o'clock. I would also like to see her lead with her elbow more from 9-6 o'clock.
So what are the biggest issues that you see in the video, and feel free to pick out little issues also. YOU WILL NOT HURT MY FEELINGS. If there is something you would like to compare between the two pitches, do that also. In all honesty the first pitch looks pretty poor, not sure how she even threw a strike, the second pitch looked better to me. Both pitches are fastballs!!!
