Instead, really focus on swing consistency and repetition to help increase the speed you bring it through the zone. Even a slight increase in overall speed (think just 2 to 5 miles per hour increase) can give you up to 40 feet extra distance, and a ton more velocity when you square one up.
Instead, at the peak of your leg lift, your weight should have already shifted, your drive knee should be inside your drive hip, and your lead hip should already be driving towards home. The early you shift your weight, the easy your trasition will be into the stride. The stride is the second most important element of the pitching mechanics. Stride speed and length are both vitally important to velocity. The only way to increase both aspects is through an effective back leg drive. In order to achieve proper back leg drive, you must avoid over collapsing the drive knee past the drive foot. The “drop and drive” isn’t inherently flawed, but you must collapse too drastically. You should be pushing towards, not dropping your weight over the rubber.
There is more to choosing a baseball glove than most people might think. Remember to do your research and understand the proper sizing when making your choice. Keep in mind the positions you will be playing. Always make sure to try on as many brands and styles as you can that way you can find what is most comfortable to you. Most of all just have fun and figure out what you prefer. If you have any questions you can go to Baseball Training Aids Plus.
