This question is in regard to a very good player in our high school program. He was upper 80’s to 90 as a 10th grader and committed to a very good DI program last spring, then had to have Tommy John surgery last summer. His rehab has gone well but I have concerns that I am looking for other opinions about.

As a right handed pitcher, at foot strike, his right hand and the ball are pointed almost directly to the ground, down his right leg. He doesn’t come close to getting to the inverted W position, it is straight down. I have voiced my concern about this to our head coach but get the “that’s how he has always done it” comment. His parents and evidently college coaches are not concerned about this but, as one of our pitching coaches, I am. I have videoed him several times to confirm my thoughts.

Again, I would love to hear the thoughts of others on the dangers, if any, of these mechanics, or the situation. Thanks.
