The Hokies finished the 2008 season ranked #6 in the country in team ERA. In this on-field DVD, Virginia Tech pitching coach Barb Sherwood breaks down the game's most popular pitches - the drop ball, the curve ball, the screw ball, and the rise ball. Sherwood uses four- and five-step drill progressions to build each of these movement pitches. Each progression begins close to the plate with basic wrist snap and advances to the full throw with an emphasis on body position and weight transfer. As a bonus, Sherwood instructs her pitchers to mix pitches from the mound to illustrate the variety of spin and ball movement. Viewing pitches from behind the plate gives you a front row seat and an opportunity to see the ball move. Virginia Tech pitchers demonstrate the drills including 2008 Collegiate Softball Player of the Year and 1st Team All-American Angela Tincher.
