A Pitcher’s Magic Pill to SuccessAugust 30, 2014
Style Versus Mechanics For PitchersSeptember 2, 2014
Want to throw an awesome Curve?
If your a pitcher who wants to improve his game, I’m certain you answered YES!
I’ve worked with thousands of pitchers the last thirteen years. When many of the Little League and High School pitchers begin taking pitching lessons, they are anxious to show off their curveball. The majority of the time I’m not impressed.
You’ve seen the curves I’m talking about before. The curves that hang, squirt and float in there.
If you want a great curveball, you’ve got to be able to throw it right (of course) but you also have to throw it hard. Most pitchers try and force a rotation to spin the ball. In the process, they slow down their delivery, change their arm slot, and throw their arm violently toward the ground.
You’re asking for trouble if you do that. A pitcher who throws a curve like that is “arm focused.” You want to throw your curveball with those same explosive mechanics I’ve been talking about all these years.
Again, to avoid the slow, hanging curve; be explosive just like you do when you throw your fastball. All you change is your wrist and forearm at release of the pitch.
Don’t you want a curveball that comes in fast yet breaks hard, late and quick?
If you feel you’re ready to learn to throw a great curveball, one that breaks hard and fast, get your copy of my pitching grips and workouts DVD. I’ll show you how to throw it right. I cut to the chase and give you everything you need to know about how to throw the curve and several other off speed pitches.
