A Pro Pitching Institute Blog - Fanatical Command.

You shrink your target area to the size of your Catcher’s mitt by finishing your front leg lift you’re your weight centered just in front of your back foot.

How your body works.

Whether pitching or merely going through your daily activities, your body is hardwired to keep itself in balance.
Your body accomplishes this by giving you no choice but to end your front leg lift with your weight centered in one of two places.
  1. You end your front leg with your weight centered over your back foot or
  2. You end your front leg with your weight centered just in front of your back foot.

Each weight distribution produces characteristically predictable result with uncanny accuracy.

Weight centered over your back foot.

The instant your front foot comes off the ground your body goes to work to center your weight within your base of support. (With one foot touching the ground, your base of support becomes the distance between your knees.)
When you fail to obsess over your movements into your front leg lift, you allow your knees to cross one another, you lose your base of support and, to stay in balance, you force your body to center your weight over your back foot.
With your weight centered over your back-foot, to get your body moving toward the plate, you must make some movement that’ll shift your weight toward the plate.
The instant you shift your weight, until your front foot gets back on the ground, your throwing arm is used to get your weight back to center.
The degree to which you use your throwing arm path to balance your body determines the size of your target area.

Weight centered just in front of your back foot.

You shrink your target area to the size of your Catcher’s mitt by finishing your front leg lift you’re your weight centered just in front of your back foot.
By being fanatical about your movements into your front leg lift, your body instinctively centers your weight between your knees.
From this position, instead of shifting your weight toward your target, you use your glove side to rotate your body down the mound.
By rotating down the mound, you keep your throwing arm free to respond to your foot plant. When your front foot contacts the ground, your planned body position forces you to use your throwing arm to get your body back in balance. .
By plan, to get your body back in balance, your throwing action literally turns into a throwing reaction.
As a spontaneous reaction to your body position at foot plant, you throwing hand comes through a consistently tiny release window, the additional torque from your lower body enhances your throwing arm speed and the addition energy generated by your lower body cause your pitches to break closer to the plate than usual.

Fast track your improvement.

Lots of people can throw hard, but few know where their pitches will end up. To be one of the few pitchers who throws hard and knows where each pitch will end up, obsess over your movements into your front leg lift.

Pro Pitching Institute Blog - Control every hitter.



How your pitching sequence works.

When you do your normal delivery in slow-motion, one of two things happen. Either …
  1. You can’t help but end your movements with a spontaneous throwing (re)action or
  2. Your movements completely stop when your front foot strikes the ground and, to complete your delivery, you must think about making a throwing action.

You Control Your Opponent

Out of the billions of movement combinations within your pitching motion, only one movement sequence gives you control over your opponent. In this sequence, not coincidentally, your slow-motion delivery makes your throwing action a fundamental part of your movements.

Within this sequence …
  • Your foot placements begin with your feet under your hips.
  • Next, your legs center your weight in front of your back foot.
  • Followed by your front leg lift ending with your front knee in line with your front shoulder.
  • Finally, your glove hand takes you into your throwing action.

Any variation to this sequence changes your entire movement combination and, when your front foot hits the ground, risks your slow-motion delivery coming to a complete stop?

Your Opponent Controls You

There are billions (minus one) movement possibilities that cause your slow-motion delivery to stop when your front foot touches the ground.
You have no chance to deliver 3 consecutive pitches directly into your Catcher’s target once you ...
  • Begin your delivery with your feet anywhere but under your hips.
  • Start your movement sequence with your back knee over or in front of your back foot.
  • End your front leg lift with your front knee behind your front hip.
  • Come out of your front leg lift with your front leg or throwing hand moving before your glove hand.

The cost for continuing what you’re doing is a shortened pitching career. The reward for looking at your delivery in a unique way becomes the possibility you realize your wildest pitching dreams.

Fast track your improvement.

Trial-and-error turns your sustainability into a hit-or-miss proposition. In fact, by taking the trial-and-error route, your pitching career could be over before you understand how to be successful. To fast track your journey to spontaneous success, visit the Pro Pitching Institute.

No excuses, only reasons.

There’s no excuse for you not knowing the one movement pattern that’ll end your slow-motion delivery with a throwing action. Your first step to removing this tragic flaw is to pick up your cell phone, call “Skip” at 856-281-2596 and schedule your FREE 20-minute, Pro Pitching Institute Pitching Session.

Pro Pitching Institute Blog - The Only Solution to Pitching Excellence

Whether you’re a Little Leaguer, Professional or any level in between, this self-checking, 6-step movement pattern produces the sustainable command, enhanced throwing arm speed, later ball movement and deceptive arm action you need to succeed in a sport built on failure.

Only one movement sequence guarantees sustainable pitching success!

Your pitching motion contains more movement combinations than a Rubik’s Cube.

A Rubik’s Cube has billions of movement combinations, but a series of very perceptive and simply executed movement patterns make it easy to get the same colored squares on the same sides.

Why you struggle?

Like a Rubik’s Cube, many pitching motion movement combinations tease you into thinking you’ve solved your personal pitching riddle, but, when you test the movement pattern you thought worked, you find it impossible to get any 3 consecutive pitches to travel directly into your target.

With the billions of movement combinations a pitching motion contains, simply using trial-and-error to find the right combination isn’t wise. By doing so, there’s an excellent chance your competitive pitching career will end before you find a sustainable movement pattern, and, throughout your entire pitching career, your pitching success means surviving your pitching failures.

Experience success!

Out of these billions of movement combinations, one universally productive pitching pattern does exist.

Whether you’re a Little Leaguer, Professional or any level in between, this self-checking, 6-step movement pattern produces the sustainable command, enhanced throwing arm speed, later ball movement and deceptive arm action you need to succeed in a sport built on failure.

With a little time and effort, you’ll marvel how quickly 4 simple positions and 2 basic movements solve your pitching woes.

In fact, your laser focus on this simple 6-stage movement process will get you to confidently deliver every pitch into your Catcher’s target with the later ball movement and deceptive arm action needed to consistently challenge every hitter on every pitch.

Fast track your improvement.

By knowing this one-in-a-billion movement sequence, creating a productive and spontaneous throwing (re)action is simple. However, trial-and-error turns your sustainability into a hit-or-miss proposition. To fast track your journey to spontaneous success, visit the Pro Pitching Institute.
