First, thanks to all the folks that have kept this going.
I have coached for several years (baseball and softball), but my DD is 10 and has started showing an interest in pitching. So naturally I took my typing/clicking skills to Google. Which eventually brought me here. The first thing I noticed was there was more than one fastpitch technique. The next thing I noticed was there was very little positive discussion about HE, wrist snaps, slam the door, etc. Have all the HEs been run off? Looking forward to learning from the members of this forum.

Welcome.

There is nothing positive to say about poor technique that no elite pitcher uses in a game. Slow motion video proves that nothing HE teaches is actually done in games by the best. Simple as that. Even the 'elite' pitchers who now teach HE are just repeating what they were told - but when you see them pitch (especially game footage) they don't actually do it - it is all IR fundamentals that their atheltic talent figured out for itself.

Just like most things where there are differences in technique and style, there is always common points that are absolute. I like what is discussed here because it comes from people who have moved with the latest information and moved on from 'how it was done when I was taught'.
