Hi, I am writing to you to ask about my glove side movement. I have watched every possible Top Velocity video from Youtube (because as a college student I can’t afford much), but that is besides the point; I am curious on what this side should do. Should the elbow be pointed, or can the glove arm be extended? And, does tucking the arm in generate more pitching velocity?

Thanks

It doesn’t really matter. Do whatever is comfortable as long as your front shoulder is closed at FFS while the hips open. Tucking the glove arm properly supports pitching velocity but doesn’t actively generate it.
