The mini wind-up for pitchers

Learning how to pitch can be a difficult thing for young pitchers.  Bad balance, not staying on their line, and simply bad body control add contribute to young pitchers not being to consistently throw strikes.  Usually less movement is better when instructing young pitchers which is why many coaches recommend young pitchers throw from the stretch.  However, as they get older, they have to learn how to use more of their body to handle to increase in pitching distances.  This can be helped by learning the wind-up delivery.  

In today’s video tip, I explain and demonstrate a more simplified version of the wind-up that can help older pitchers transition into a full wind-up to get more out of their body and yet stay efficient in their delivery.
