Pitching mechanics are an essential component in helping players become more efficient as throwing athletes. As mechanics are improved, players become more consistent repeating a delivery that will allow them to command the ball with improved accuracy, velocity, and avoid injury. The premise and goals of the Instructional Bull Pen Classes are to develop...
PITCHING MECHANICS - Learning the proper and efficient movements needed to generate and transfer energy from all parts of the body and transferring it into the ball.
PITCH CONTROL - Good pitch control starts with having good pitching mechanics. A consistent release point stems from aligning all aspects of the wind-up and establishing a consistency is key.
STRATEGY - A big part of pitching is understanding the situation. The pitcher needs to also understand his own abilities and know how he wants to approach each hitter.
VELOCITY - The key to better accuracy and more velocity is good mechanics, a strong arm and a well-conditioned pitcher will essentially produce accuracy and a consistent velocity. Combining this class with the Arm Velocity Enhancement Class will improve your velocity for all position players.
Endurance - By increasing the pitch count weekly, players develop pitching endurance.
