Hi guys, my son and I are new to the site and to Dick’s system. My son is a junior in high school and has pitched on the varsity squad this past season. Our hope is that Dick’s coaching and use of his system will help my son reach his maximum potential. We have yet to get our video analysis done, but in the meantime I have a question that has us a bit confused.
I’m wondering if anyone can define “leg collapse” for us? I hear it mentioned very often but it seems to me there may be a fine line between actual collapse and just a “flexion” of the back leg prior to moving the hips toward the plate. Is that correct or should there be no “flexion” whatsoever by the back leg prior to moving the hips forward?
It looks like a lot of the pro pitchers I’ve watched on some of Dick’s videos “do” have some flexion or slight collapse in their delivery.
If someone could explain exactly what the back leg should ideally be doing prior to the hips moving forward It may clear up this confusion for us.
Thanks and we’re looking forward to participating in the website forums.
