How many pitchers /pitching coaches out there use the balance beam for pitching? In "Balance Beam," I mean a 6 inch wide board with platform elevated off the ground by a few inches. Were using this in our pitching lessons to correct an overstep over the power line, which is one of things my DD is trying to shake. But it also helps the pitcher stay in athletic position, or at least not leaning too much forward or back.
I think its an effective tool to work on some corrections. I read Amanda Scarborough was a big fan of it. I know the local BIG 10 college near us uses it with their pitchers consistently. I guess it works by making the pitcher step in the right spot or where you want them to, or they fall off the balance beam. The only drawback is it is a potential way to twist an ankle. When my DD uses it she does seem to get better 12 to 6 spin as we use a striped ball with it. She starts going slower and at 50% speed, then she works up her speed to 80%. She doesn't have the courage to go 100% on it as that's what she has been recommended to do.
