So when I learned how to pitch from the windup I was always taught to put my right foot (RHP) directly along side of the rubber when taking the first step. I was never taught anything on flexion or Center of Gravity. So as I watch Zack Greinke’s in slow motion I see that his foot that’s on the rubber rotates almost directly in line with home plate. So as I began to attempt to implement this rotation into my pitching I found that I am not able to get this rotation. Frankly, I pitch with my foot parallel right against the rubber. Could this be because I do not have a very low Center of Gravity? I tried a couple dry pitches and it felt like I was able to rotate my foot when my CoG was lower, but I am not completely sure. Any feedback?
