If you cut the tail off, you wont see the nice tight spiral (what this drill is intended for)

It needs to be aero dynamic.

 

Your too young to remember an “original” nerf football…haha

 

once you start loosing pcs of it, it doesnt fly straight ever again.

Hey guys,

Good conversation. But I got to ask because next week we do the internal and external throws with bolth foot ball and baseball. First we use junior footballs and in reference to the nerf Brent stated the waight of the ball is important as well. Also I think the pronation happens after ball release. Because if you did it at release you wouldnt get the good 6 to 12 rotation on your four seen fastball.

It is proven here that high velocity pitchers are internally rotated and pronated earlier than low velocity pitchers. Pronation and internal rotation with these high velocity pitchers is happening at release because before release the arm is fully externally rotated and more supinated. Where this is confusing is that at the point of release the palm of the hand is facing the target with fingers behind the ball or a more neutral position which will create the 12, 6 rotation. After release the arm immediately goes into full internal rotation and pronation which supports deceleration and is critical for arm health. Checkout the clip of Chapman releasing the pitch you can see he is pronating and internally rotating into his release point. It is a little jumpy because I took the frames from different pitches of his to create each frame. His finger position is also moving a little bit because he was throwing different pitches here but you can see his wrist pronating and the arm internally rotating.

hmmm.. i just found this…. it's from a manga that I just read, it's basketball by the way. Kuroko is like a passing master, and he does quick passes. This was a move he developed to increase the destructive force… I believe not many of you read manga, and so these things may not be credible… but, if you look at it if you have a football rotation compared with a normal fastball rotation, would that make any difference? Will it also go straight? Just want to know the differences, because it's hard to get pronation after release, I usually get in around release.. 😉

Your wrist naturally pronates when throwing (release). Just like the video above. You should have it at release if not a tad bit sooner.

 

Do do have video or something where your wrist just stops?
