Helps pitcher focus on using his hips during his delivery.

Drill Setup

  • Pitcher stands anywhere on the field holding a bat behind his back.

How it Works

1. Pitcher stands holding a bat by the ends behind his back.


2. He goes into his pitching motion, taking a transfer step, a pivot step, lifting his leg and getting into closed position.


3. He then goes forward rotating his upper torso and thrusting his hips through the zone.


4. Perform 10-15 repetitions.

Coaching Tips

  • Pitcher should not be taking his hands off the bat at anytime during this drill.
  • When going into the closed position the end of the bat should point directly at home plate.
