Pitching Drill

Balance and separation. Pitchers should break over the rubber. If you do not have balance in your throwing motion, you will not be consistent. The front side, hip and elbow should lead and the head on target. Drive out with the lower half first and push out.

This is a drill to help pitchers slow down and not get into a rush.
