my son is collapsing his back leg and I want to
know what to tell him, I have always taught feel
so is there a feeling I can provide him that will
help him out. He is in a really good position as release
but his power is not what it should be…john
Have him move faster toward the plate.
How is his weight shift?
i would say its ok but his first move after his lifts his leg is
to collapse the right leg and then he has to catch up and
he eventually gets there but he is not throwing down
hill as much as you would like to see..
since we moved from the full wind up to the stretch he has slowed down. we did it because he was lifting his left leg and breaking his hand outside the left leg. so he was pushing his arms out towards 3rd and then breaking his hands there. he is still doing it a little but its gotten better. because he has small hands he
is pretty much throwing a change up, so when he throws strikes, kids hit it. before he was more wild with a regular 4 seem fastball grip and was throwing harder with more walks and k’s. i guess its not supposed to be easy and why so many kids get messed up and you add bad coaching….yikes..
See if you can get him to lean his front hip toward the plate as his lead leg is lifting up. Almost guaranteed to eliminate the collapsing. Do you have the video of Bard? He does this nicely.
YES I HAVE SEEN THE BARD VIDEO, I WILL TRY IT WITH MY SON, HE HAS TALENT AND
IS COMPETITIVE AS HELL AND I HAVE SEEN IT TAKE OVER DURING HIS PITCHING
AND JUST WANT TO TAP INTO IT AND GET HIM GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
Post a vid when you get the chance.
