Pitching Mechanics
Our pitching series focuses on proper pitching mechanics with an emphasis on safety. The proper grip of a baseball is a vital part of pitching. The grips video explains the different grips, including hand and finger position for two and four seem fastballs and changeups.

The pitching videos break down proper pitching mechanics and explain each step. The "step and throw" method of throwing a baseball is explained in one of our videos. Safe pitching motion is a primary aspect. We then focus on balance and power. Proper positioning is a key element in using the whole body to generate velocity and control.

This video collection covers "pitching from the wind up" which typically occurs when no runners are on base. The series includes set up for "pitching from the wind up" and key leg and body movements when delivering the pitch.

When runners are on base, a pitcher must be able to pitch effectively from the stretch. To be effective while pitching from the stretch, a pitcher must understand the dynamics of this situation and the rules that govern his actions on the mound. We deal with these issues and then how a pitcher should deliver the ball to home plate while pitching from the stretch. Also, we present a video that teaches the pick-off move pitchers can use to try to throw out a base runner on first. In an advanced lesson, Coach Pick discusses balks and what pitchers need to do to avoid being called for them.
