How it Works
- Players start from the stride position.
- First, they simply shift their weight from the inside of the back foot to the inside of the front leg. They do this repeatedly to get a feel for proper weight shifting.
- Next, they simulate a throw and hold the follow-through.
- The weight shifts at the beginning of this drill are important because they teach the pitcher to load up and then take the weight forward – when a player is doing this part of the drill stress “inside to inside”.
- On the simulated throw, pitcher should keep weight on inside of front foot. Front knee should finish inside the throwing elbow. Toes should be down flat against the ground.
