Yes sir, I’ll get a back view and use a tripod next time.
To tell you the truth, I haven’t been gunned in a long time. I think and have been told I throw mid eighties, but I’m not sure just because I have not been clocked. I had an ulnar nerve transplant surgery last August and haven’t been clocked at full strength. The doctor’s explanation was that it was a growth problem resulting in the tricep muscle flexing on the nerve on every pitch causing me pain.
I think I compare well to most of the mechanics you teach except for the very high leg kick. How badly do you think it is hurting my mechanics?
The main issues I’m having now are: Stepping a couple of inches across my body with an angled foot pointing behind the right handed batter. For the upper body, I was already pronating the ball or turning it towards second the whole time as I was taking it out off the glove and bringing it into the high cocked position (I think I’ve fixed this issue even though you probably can’t tell from the bad video), then once I got to the high cocked position, the angle of my arm was angled closer to 80 degrees than 90-100 degrees towards my head and may be a tad too low, which is where I think my inconsistent curveball is coming from. The angle of my arm has gotten better, but still needs work.
A few good points I see are that I stay closed well, brace up nicely, and finish in a nice flat back position.
Are there any other good/bad points you could see from that bad video?
Unfortunately, I re-injured my back today diving for a ball in the outfield, then pitching, so I’ll be out for a little recovering from overuse from rotating to the left from hitting and pitching. I’m not sure if that made sense, but the medicine guy talks about it on your conditioning dvd that I just bought with tightness in the hips and lower back, causing the symmetry to shift in the lower back region, which was what I was diagnosed with before when I hurt it and it is the same exact problem reoccurring now. Once the inflammation calms down, I’ll add the exercises and flexibility programs, especially the ones for the lower back into my physical therapy routine.
Hope I was clear enough and sorry to talk your ear off,
I was talking about the position of my hands at the belt opposed to already having them chest level before anything happens in the delivery, sorry for not being clear enough. I’m starting a fall wood bat team this week and probably will not be able to post any video until early next week when I’ll be throwing a bullpen by myself. I would show you some footage of me earlier in the season, but I’ve been working on a few small kinks in my delivery and want to show you the most recent possible.
No need to reply to this, I’ll post some video sometime early next week.
