Former Major League Pitching Coach Rick Mathews gives you an in-depth pitching lesson on proper pitching mechanics. Coach Mathews' mechanics will develop consistency in your athlete's pitching approach, which will lead to better accuracy, higher velocity and more strikeouts!
Mathews begins with a detailed look at proper pitching mechanics. He dissects the pitcher's footwork, drop step, balance, stride and arm position. He gives you tips that will give your pitcher a better angle to deceive batters and create a downhill plane. In addition, Mathews covers pitching with runners on base. He shows you a quicker motion to the plate, as well as technique to throw over to first base.
Mathews demonstrates four pitches that can be added to any pitcher's arsenal. He shows a fastball - both a 4-seam and 2-seam variety - a change up, curveball and slider. With each pitch he covers the proper grip, arm slot and strategies on when to throw it.
Mathews closes with fixes for six common pitching problems, including flying open, head position, hiding pitches and more.
These techniques are simple to teach, easy to pick up and perfect for pitchers at any level of play. Help your pitchers create a consistent, accurate delivery!
