Brent,

I wanted to get your thoughts on the idea of weight shift, specifically shifting back over the rubber.  Let's say, from the stretch, do you like for the pitcher to tilt or lean back a bit before of at the start of the leg lift to get weight over the rubber in order to get as much mass as far back as possible.  I used to think this was correct and I would have my son do this.  However, I have noticed that his shoulders don't get level at landing and thus has a low throwing elbow at the high-cocked position.  I am thinking this weight shift may be the cause of this?

Thanks,

Stu
