Hope everyone had a great healthy summer. I know a lot of you are getting back into the groove for winter ball. So I’m expecting a lot of pitching questions and will answer them. If you have any questions, be sure to ask them right here.
9 Phases of Pitching Delivery
We’ve broken down the pitching delivery in 9 phases. These 9 phases are the protocols that we use at the NPA, so I’m sure there will be a ton questions.
- Balance and Posture
- Leg lift and body thrust
- Stride and Momentum
- Opposite and Equal
- Hip and shoulder separation & Delayed shoulder rotation
- Stack and Track
- Swivel and Stabilize
- Preset forearm/wrist angle and pitch grip
- Release point and follow through
I’m sure there are also questions about the new velocity training that was done on HBO Real Sports. All 9 Phases happens in less than 1.35 seconds. So, there’s a lot of going in a short period of time.
No pitching question is a dumb question.
Just remember that timing, sequencing, and mechanics in that order. If your timing is right, your sequencing will be right, then your mechanics will be right. So leave a question here on my blog and we can get to work.
Remember there’s research based information and opinion based information. Research based is what the best of the best do. It is not by coincidence.
Thanks, look forward to hearing from you.
