Just my 2 cents...... and PLEASE don't take this the wrong way. Truly trying to throw out some ideas for you as we are all in this journey together.Thank you, that's a great idea. She definitely does the same thing you describe as " muscling " the ball. Its crazy because she sees the difference when she stays tall yet cant seem to fix it . What a struggle !!!
It's painful. We went through it for almost 2 years. Varied from poor to getting better to slipping back. Once it was fixed we moved to rise ball and that requires a lean lol.. All of the drills we did (pool noodles, nose over belly button, pulling the ponytail) none of them worked. The only thing that worked for us was breaking the motion down and having DD start at 25% and work up to 50% up to where the lean would start then we would raise the level of awareness. Also the App called "Technique" was a life saver. Allowing us to break down into slow motion. Keep these ideas in your back pocket so if your DD ever starts to lean you can fix.Well thanks a ton. I'm not looking forward to going through this with my 9U DD who is pitching really well.
Yeah, that lean is troublesome. Part of me worries about that pitching coach. Is the coach actively correcting that? It shouldn't be on dad to correct -- this is what you're paying a coach for. I'd expect an action plan, a set of drills to work on to combat it, etc.
