You must provide a video if you want an accurate answer. Trying to conceptulize and provide feedback on what you describe would be guessing at best.
You must be able to see what is affecting what?
Need a side and back angles. Front is also helpful.
I was wondering if anyone had seen this before…
At 10 yrs old one of my sons, the “power pitcher”, has very good beginner mechanics and a velocity somewhere in the 50’s (I am looking to get a radar gun…suggestions?) with slowly improving control as we work video and implement the Mills system in a sensible fashion. He has a very explosive move toward home that I hesitate to disrupt but one thing he does is concerning- once he begins his motion he quickly raises his lead leg and at the same time folds his foot underneath to where it moves back & up toward his backside rather than hanging more naturally below his lead knee. This is compensated for by his body, from what I can see, by his head/torso leaning forward somewhat, I would assume as a natural adjustment for balance. We have worked on minimizing this somewhat with mixed results. I would think this shifting forward of his shoulders and also head is probably less than optimum but am interested to know if anyone has encountered anything along the same lines.
Understood. As soon as I figure out how to post the video I will do so, thanks.
