Three things make a pitcher successful when facing their competition:
2) Change of Speed
Today I want to talk about movement. How do you get proper movement on the baseball when your throwing off-speed pitches? How do you do that without putting more stress on your throwing arm?
There is a very simple explanation to this. Throwing any off-speed pitch is easier than most people make it out to be.
What do most pitchers do when they first try to throw a curveball? They try twisting the ball right before release or wrap the pitch which you have seen me demonstrate on our youtube video How to Throw a Curveball.
All you need to do to get the ball to move for you is change your wrist and forearm angle at release of the ball. This is simple to do. I simplify off-speed pitching for you as I show you how to throw 10 different pitches on our pitching grips/workouts DVD.
The following pitching videos will help you get a head start on your competition this year. We have received a lot of great feedback with these free videos. Enjoy!
