Brent,

I couldn't figure any other way to get the videos to you, I hope they work this way.

 

This first video is of Nate Saquilon six months later (first video was 16 Nov 10). His velocity improved to 90 MPH from 85-87, but his control and command  of his pitches is what has improved the most.

 

This second video is of Gabe Saquilon, Nate's younger brother, who is a senior in high school. He's earned a scholarship to Cal State Northridge this fall. His velocity jumped from 85-88 mph last summer to 90-92 mph, topping out at 94 mph. There have been many (14 to be exact) MLB teams that have shown interest in him, he will be entering this years' draft.

 

PS: Remember that video I sent of the basketball trick shot?

Well, this is the clown that made the basket!

 

Thanks!

Glenn

Glenn,

 

Here is my analysis of Gabe. I will put together Nate's very soon.It is good to hear about your guys velocity gains. Keep it up!

 

GREAT SHOOT!!!

Brent,

Did you ever get a chance to review Nate's video? You must be really busy getting ready for your summer camps.

 

Thanks,

Brent,

Great analysis on Nate, excellent example of mechanics in Aroldis Chapman.

Questions:

–  How is “hip drive” generated? Are you pushing off the rubber with a slightly bent knee or pushing the front hip out?

– You mentioned that Nate should “drive his shin into the ground…knee pushing into the ground”.  Would that be the front side of the shin and knee? I am I correct to say that to accomplish this movement I would be exploding off the rubber and “twisting” my foot so that my heel would come up into 3X?

Thanks,

Glenn

“Hip Drive” is a product of force production from the drive leg. It is the force applied to the power pads of the foot. This is the area from the ball of the foot to the arch. You want to apply force to the power pads as you lead with your front hip and start building speed towards the target.

All you need to focus on is triple extension after you aline your force vector with your front hip. Internally rotating the drive leg or foot will occur naturally as you continue to triple extend while opening your front hip for front foot strike.

Thanks for that explanation, hope it will help Nate understand force vector in his delivery. BUT! I still have more questions, (sorry!) 🙂

– Should his drive leg be slightly bent in force vector so he will be able to 3X into foot stike? It seems like if his drive leg was straight he would be late in his timing and it would be difficult to 3X and decreasing his momentum. Is it similar to “drop and drive” mechanics?

– I know that hip/shoulder separation occurs just BEFORE foot strike. Does forward trunk tilt occur AT foot stirke? And in one of your analysis videos, you mentioned “leading with your left pec (right hander) into forward trunk tilt (I might have heard wrong?). Can you expound of that? 

Thanks,

Glenn
