How many coaches/parents have used video analysis footage of thier pitchers/DD's pitching as a training aid? If you have what kind of results did you get? Thank you.

I have used it. basically My eyes are just not sharp or experienced enough to realize what I am seeing in real time. Just watching the video in slow motion, I can pick up a lot.

It is invaluable. It doesn't have to be fancy. It really helps the pitcher to see what is happening with the arm at 12 o'clock, 9 o'clock and at release.

Thanks. Any software recomendations for the do it yourselfer Coach/Father to use on a desktop pc? Or did you guys pay someone to do it for you? One last question, was it a one time thing or did you get it done numerous times and use it as a tool to improve mechanics?

Not certain how long you can wait, but Sarah and I will have a Pitching Motion Analysis software package out soon (maybe a month or so). I'm biased but it has some really great video and captioned positions for comparison. Check Fastpitch Pitching for the launch date. Also, I think the cost is going to be very affordable relative to other options out there and the great thing is it's going to be easy to use---has to be if I'm going to be able to use it :).
