Good point.Well, I don't think that standing underhand toss from 15-18ft equates to a pitch from 35ft trajectory wise, although velocity is also a factor. But I suppose I should take some video and take a look at this. Plus 10 pitches to 12 players is a 120 throws. But in the end it comes down to accuracy, I can dart throw the ball to spots better than I can when I underhand it. Ball spin is not a factor.
Yes. But also at some point throw them (I do it sitting) arced pitches with some loft. It simulates a change up and helps them figure out timing. And it will mess them up quite a bit until they figure it out (which is the point).Do both
If you are just starting to learn how to front toss softball, make it fast and flat. Do that first and move on from there.
