Well, I am glad I took the time to post about this. Thank you for taking the time to take a look at the device and share your thoughts. I already have a storage room full of “expensive boat anchors” and do not need another one! Thanks again.
Sorry for failing to respond.?? I became sidetracked.?? Now I cannot figure out how to post a video.
Replying to my own post, I don’t know if that is out of the ordinary or not!
I went back and reviewed my son’s video analysis and compared how he is doing now. He IS doing better with his weight shift and hand break. I compared it to the video of him provided for the analysis and then to the MLB player used in the side-by-side comparison. I should have done that earlier. My mistake. And I need to let him know he is doing better too.
But, the problem, as I see it now, is that his hands are still ahead of his trunk. In other words, his hands are NOT in the position we want at landing. His right arm (pitching arm) is not cocked at landing and his lead arm is not out in front, it is already down by his hip. So, any idea on how to fix those problems????
Thank you kindly. I will post some video as soon as I get a chance. We actually keep working on it and he is slowly picking it up. He has to think about it to come close to doing it right, so he does tend to slow down his hand break and entire delivery. But, every time out it all becomes a little more natural.
One main problem is his pitching instructor taught him to break his hands BEFORE moving to the plate, so his entire delivery begins with his arm and trunk ahead of everything else. So, baby steps are what we are taking now.
But, we just pitched today and he is picking it up. I will video again in a couple of days and post it for you to review.
I am working on getting out for a one on one lesson. Really need it to shorten the learning curve.
Sorry for the delayed response. I have been neck deep in alligators. Thanks again.
