That actually doesn’t happen most of the time. She’s throwing in the basement, and the ball was coming right back to her!

I’m going to ask her to try a couple of things with pulling instead of pushing and see how well it goes over. I’ll post a new video with the results. Thanks again everyone.

This is kind of a vicious cycle; If she has success pitching, she could definitely be in 100%, but she has to be in 100% to have succes pitching! She played 2B for JV last year, and she’s happy there. Really, she’d be happy anywhere her coaches asked her to play as long as she’s playing!

I would work on posture(keep butt in) which should get her some brush

This was our quick attempt at pulling instead of pushing today. She has practice, so I didn’t want to push too much. I’m not sure I’m equipped to teach IR by myself, even after studying the stickies here. There is zero hope of finding an IR instructor anywhere near here. I may have to let her continue to do what she’s doing until after the season.

SDay - I completely agree with the posture. She really, really wants to bend over. We worked on that today too.

For one day...this is great!

Can she try this? Start without a ball...



simple commentary...start with palms up IN FRONT of your body...cross the right hand OVER the left...first few times through, STOP\PAUSE when her hands are OVER her head...palms should be facing her head (NOT UPWARD) and then let her continue the motion as he demonstrates...

DO NOT LET HER "POP HER BOOTY"

Her bicep\upper arm should stabilize against her upper torso...her forearm should "roll" over the "Flank-Lateral Region"

It's insane that java's video coach james posted still has fewer than 3,000 views (and like 30 of them are just from me at this point). Are people not even trying to learn how to pitch properly?

NOPE...bias and emotion interfere with looking at the truth...

Not to derail the topic but today my 10 YO attended a 5 hour infield clinic...during the clinic I got bombarded over my "you pitch funny" video I posted last week on youtube...one mom called me an a-hole (LOL) I just smiled and told her to point me in the direction of a pro or college pitcher doing what is being taught to their DD...that's when I got the finger a few times...LOL

So...you're pissed your DD is getting a $70/hour lesson and you take that out on me? I'd be pissed too if I was getting the wool pulled over my eyes...
