Coach — I purchased the Vid Analysis.  I know my lower half not moving fast enough towards HP is hurting my velocity.  Your take on various fixes and drills to make those fixes stick would be greatly appreciated.

 

Respectfully, George Max

Thanks, Coach!  I appreciate the candid observations…and I agree.  Since that vid was taken (about two years ago in 2010), I started working on my load and lean.  I'm not quite there yet, but making progress.  At the time, I was only about 5'9″ and now I'm at 6'2″.  In addition to working on honing my mechanics, I've also had some additional adjusting to do with 5″ added to my height.  I still have a way to go…but I'm working hard (both conditioning and on the mechanics).  I've added the uncut version / 3rd base view of the vid I sent to NCSA for my recruiting files (they only used the one angle for the recruiting vid).  If possible, I'd like to purchase a second video analysis using this vid (it has me in both the windup and stretch, throwing 4SFB, Cutter, Slider, and SPFB).  I'm currently only sitting at between 84-86mph.

In your opinion, Coach, what is the best drill I can do to reinforce the fix to get me into the “force vector” — moving horizontally vs. vertically?

Thanks again, Coach.  Respectfully, George Max

I'm not sure how much improving your force vector is going to help until you eliminate some of the “funk” in your delivery.  Your stance is closed and you close your upper body off even more when you lift your leg, which results in your landing closed and throwing/pushing across your body.  There are some high level players that throw across their bodies, but they are a minority.  And they tend to rely on a lot of core strength to power through.  You're not doing that.  SIMPLIFY your motion first, then work on 3X.

Thanks — I'll work  on that, Coach… How about when looking at the start of my delivery from the stretch?  That takes away the additional movements.  I'd like to start working on it from there first.  Looking at my stance, when you say “closed”, how do you recommend I tweak it so that I start correctly?  And the “pushing / throwing across the body, I was told that before but did not really grasp what they were trying to tell me.  Can you explain it a little more?  I'd like to fix that if I can, Coach.

 

Thanks again for the pointers, Coach.

 

I'm off to school…
