You don’t have to be 6 ft tall to throw the ball in the upper 60’s. I know for a fact that this is not true. How am I so certain? Because I did it. It didn’t come easy and it didn’t come on my own. With a strong work ethic and amazing pitching coaches growing up, especially one who taught me some of the BEST fast pitch mechanics from age 9-13, it can most definitely happen.
For someone under 6 ft tall or 5’10 or even 5’8, to throw in the upper 60’s, you’re going to have to have solid mechanics, especially with the lower half of your body. Gaining MPH in your pitch comes from a great delivery, a solid foundation of base mechanics and using your lower half the correct way.
I want to tell you about my mechanics as I take you through a slow motion video and explain through each frame exactly what I am doing. I also draw lines, circles and arrows for a complete video analysis. Enjoy! Let me know what you think and if you have questions!
