Hi. My name’s Mike Lumley on behalf of Expert
Village. I’m here to teach you pitching. We’ll start from here; we’ll go through it slow.
Seperate down, up, and in this phase I like to pause, especially with the young kids,
and then we’ll throw. As we throw, we bring our elbow and our glove in and we release
out front. So we’ll go through it. Down, up and finish. So when I finish, I have to make
sure that my chest is over my knee; my hand finishes to my opposite thigh. Very important, this is a good time, if you
have somebody to receive, to still have them down into a catcher’s stance so you start
working on your release points. Ok, and if you noticed the whole time that I finish off,
my chin is still focused on my target, my eyes don’t pull off to the side or my body
moves left or right. We’re going to stay linear in our mechanics, either on two facets –
up or down this way and left or right. So if our body starts to sway this way or sway
back, then we’re going to have some problems in our mechanics, and evenetually in our release
point and on our target.
