Pitching Mechanics 101 – Essay Looks at Some of Baseball’s Top Pitchers

I found an interesting blog – The Pitching Mechanic, which includes an essay on Pitching Mechanics 101. I won’t go into great detail on how to pitch a baseball because I’m a novice and it’s covered so thoroughly in the essay, but here are some tips:

• The hips should lead and pull the pitchers shoulder through
• The angle of the shoulders determine a pitcher’s arm slot
• It’s OK to lead with the elbow, it allows pitchers to create more torque
• Keep the shoulders and hips closed as long as possible during the delivery

For more be sure to check out the Pitching Mechanic blog.
