Astute coaches improve the performance of the team as a whole by employing youth baseball drills to improve the individual performances of team players and there interactions together. There are three main categories in which youth baseball drills will have an immense effect on the performance levels of players.
Developing good mechanics all begins at the balance point. This is probably one of the most poorly misunderstood aspects of the mechanics. Some pitching “experts” teach pitchers to reach a balance point at the peak of their leg lift. This is technique is absolutely detrimental to velocity, and no high velocity MLB pitcher reaches this so-called point of balance in their delivery. Professional pitchers are balanced throughout their delivery, but most importantly, they are moving towards the plate at each state of their mechanics. The traditional balance point idea is that pitchers should be perpendicular with their weight shifted over the drive leg. This technique is an absolute velocity killer.
