The slide step isn’t just for runners

In my opinion, the slide step is one of the most overused pitching strategies at the lower levels of baseball.  By lower levels I mean high school and below.  On top of that, when it is used at a proper time, the mechanics performed are often wrong and counterproductive.

However, that does not mean the slide step has no value.  As you’ll see in today’s video tip, I think the slide step can be a very useful tool – if done sparingly and correctly – to help get tough batters out.
