How To Improve Your Baseball Pitch

Posted by

It’s the season for playing baseball and if you want to improve your pitch, this is the time to do it. The mechanics and techniques are very important if you want to succeed as a pitcher and there are a lot of tips that could be very helpful. You have to set aside a lot of time for practice so you can improve your techniques.

When you are working on correcting the way you move your pitching arm, it is helpful to use the drop down knee stance technique. As the name suggests, you have to drop down on your knee which is on the same side of your pitching arm, with the other leg in front of you for support. This position isolates your lower body and allows the full concentration of your arm movement.

An important element of good pitching is your follow-through. To help integrate this movement with you pitch so that it becomes like second nature to you, place a bucket or can beneath the back of your foot while you are down on one knee. The purpose of this is that it will assist you in putting the proper distribution of weight on your front leg and encourages the follow-through that you desire.

To be a great pitcher, always throw the top side of the ball. Practice using your elbow of the pitching arm at level with your shoulders as you cock your arm back. Don’t forget your follow through. Ideally, your throwing arms must end near the opposite knee at the end of the pitch. This is how to perfect this technique.

To pitch the ball faster, you will need to place your whole body into action and not just the arm. The back is involved during the release of the ball. Practice working on these technique and see how it improves your performance.
