This is the second velocity quick tip of the velocity quick tip series.
This quick tip covers the “Tilt” and how it is a key component to pitchers like Tim Lincecum’s total body mechanics. This tip will help support good hip to shoulder separation. It uses gravity to build more core torque at front foot strike. It is important though that you maintain balance when implementing the “Tilt” into your delivery.
Here is the article I wrote on Tim Lincecum and the Tilt to learn more about the effects of this key component of velocity.
These tips all are covered in depth in the Ace Pitcher Handbook and the 3X Velocity Camp Instruction Videos. If you are looking for velocity drills to help you become more total body in your pitching mechanics then you must consider purchasing this information.

Great baseball info. on your web site I talk to several people about getting on it.
I have before me pictures of Tim Lincecum, Matt Morris Felix Hernandez, Steve Carlton and Sandy Koufax, Carlton and Matt are extended out beautifully at just the split second prior to front foot touch down, two beautiful views of triple extension, great visual aids, Tim is in his usual tilted body position, and I keep wondering is he not tilting his head too much, Koufax is in app. the same position but his head is not tilted as much and his fore arm and hand with ball in it are way behind his head and shoulder line which to me is an exaggerated Scap load position. Hernandez is in a good tilt position except for his head being angled to the point to where his eyes are pointing skyward instead of at his target, I also have pictures of Bard and Jim Morris , the rookie of which neither have tilt but have their heads centered nicely between their shoulders, hips and feet, I am not immune to good tilt but not to the point to where the body is unbalanced and way off center to the target line and where the fore arm and ball in hand are in line with or behind the head and shoulder instead of in front of them on its way to the intended target.
