I apologize for the mix up. Normally you would get an email right away with instructions on how to move forward but the website is still under repair. It’s been challenging finding the right web developers to say the least but we are getting there. The website was down for a while which is most likely why your cc says it’s still processing but I will check and get back to you asap on that. As far as how to shoot the video – I need a direct glove side angle (RHP shot from third base side, LHP shot from first base side). I also need a front angle and/or a from behind the mound angle. If your shooting a front angle make sure it’s zoomed in on the pitcher rather than behind the catcher. Also, I only need three pitches from each angle. Again, I apologize for the trouble.
Not sure what power exercise you are talking about. Can you be more specific as to what the power exercise was used for that you’re referring to?
Problems with staying back is very commom with youth pitchers. Let’s talk about what staying back actually means because staying back can be interpreted in different ways. Staying back does NOT mean staying over the rubber and not moving down the mound. What it means is that the pitchers upper body must stay over the back leg/hip as he strides down the mound. If the pitchers weight is not over the back leg then the back leg cannot be used fully.
If your having problems with your pitchers staying back then try this: Instruct the pitcher to, right about at hand break, to take his front hip and glove arm out and up towards the sky or out and up over the catchers head. This will create a slight tilt with the hips and the shoulders so that the front hip and shoulder are slightly higher than the rear hip and shoulder. You can also instruct the pitcher to show the bottom of his spikes or cleats to the catcher which will create some tilt as well. This will automatically shift the upper body back over the back leg. Once the pitcher is ready to rotate into landing, then the rear hip and shoulder will start to level out and then begin titling forward in an angle aligned with the slope of the mound. The back foot is responsible for getting the rear hip elevated above the front hip as the front foot touches down and the glove arm elbow and shoulder pull down and to the side of the front hip to create forward tilt with the upper body.
