When you’re scoring baseball games, you start to pick up on these and many other finer points on the field. You will find the game much more enjoyable to watch and to discuss with your kids or other spectators. It is not such a boring game, after all.
What Position will you be playing? Baseball Gloves come in various shapes and sizes based on the position they will be used for. An outfielder for example would choose a larger glove than those who play infield or pitcher. A first basemen has a specially designed glove that is longer with extra padding for easier catching and fielding. Catchers mitts are unique with heavy padding and only used by catchers. If you are someone that plays in many different positions then a utility glove (medium size) may be your best bet.
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.
