"If your instructor is NOT using Video Analysis, he is simply guessing as to what the problem is."

"Certainly Select and High School coaches are able to identify who has had Specialized Instruction."

"We can all agree that both older and younger players are better visual learners. Video Analysis teaches baseball skills 100% more effectively than traditional methods."

"Obviously, more successful players use Expert Video Analysis than any other type of training."

VIDEO ANALYSIS

WITH VIDEO ANALYSIS WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY WHAT ALL THE PROBLEMS ARE IN THE PITCHING DELIVERY AND THEN INSTRUCT THE PITCHER ON HOW TO CORRECT THEM. DYNAMIC PITCHING MECHANICS QUESTIONS YOU AND YOUR PITCHING COACH NEED TO HAVE ANSWERS FOR TO ENSURE YOUR SON'S PITCHING SUCCESS:

* WHAT IS PROPER BODY ALIGNMENT PRIOR TO DELIVERING THE BASEBALL?

* WHAT KIND OF ANGLE SHOULD THE FRONT FOOT BE IN UPON LANDING TO DELIVER THE PITCH TO CREATE MAXIMUM TORQUE FORCE?

* DO WE WANT A LONG OR A SHORT STRIDE AND WHY?

* WHAT DRIVES THE BODY FORWARD PRIOR TO BALL RELEASE?

* PRIOR TO BALL RELEASE, SHOULD THE BACK FOOT BE OFF OF THE GROUND OR IN CONTACT WITH THE GROUND FOR ULTIMATE VELOCITY AND CONTROL?

* SHOULD WE TURN THE BACK KNEE IN AND TOWARDS THE CATCHER PRIOR TO BALL RELEASE FOR INCREASED ACCURACY?

* WHICH PART OF YOUR BODY HELPS YOU THROW THE BALL HARDER?

* WHERE SHOULD A PITCHER BREAK HIS HANDS OUT OF THE GLOVE FOR MAXIMUM VELOCITY AND CONTROL?

* HOW SHOULD THE PITCHER TAKE THE BALL OUT OF HIS GLOVE WHEN HE SEPARATES HIS HANDS FROM THE GLOVE?

* HOW SHOULD THE PITCHERS FINGERS BE ON THE BASEBALL WHEN HE SEPARATES HIS HANDS FROM THE GLOVE?

* WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ATTRIBUTE IN A PITCHERS MECHANICS IN ORDER TO STAY HEALTHY AND BE ABLE TO PITCH REGULARLY AND EFFECTIVELY ENHANCING HIS ENJOYMENT?

* WHAT PART OF THE BODY BRINGS THE ARM TO BALL RELEASE?

* FOR FULL EFFECTIVENESS, DO WE WANT TO ROTATE OUR BODY EARLY OR LATE TO DELIVER THE PITCH?

* WHAT SHOULD YOUR GLOVE AND LEAD ARM DO PRIOR TO DELIVERING THE PITCH AND AFTER DELIVERING THE PITCH?

* HOW DO WE SYNCHRONIZE OUR UPPER BODY AND LOWER BODY TO WORK IN HARMONY TO CREATE GREAT MECHANICS, RHYTHM, TIMING, AND POWER?

* WHAT IS EARLY HIP ROTATION AND IS THIS GOOD OR BAD?

* DO YOU WANT THE LANDING KNEE POSITIONED DIRECTLY OVER THE LANDING FOOT OR BEHIND THE LANDING FOOT AT FRONT FOOT CONTACT?

* WHEN IS THE LAST CHANCE THE PITCHER HAS BEFORE RELEASING THE BASEBALL TO CREATE VELOCITY?

* DO YOU KNOW THE CORRECT WAY TO GET MAXIMUM TRUNK ROTATION AND TRUNK FLEXION?

* DOES A LEG LIFT OR BALANCE POINT INCREASE OR DECREASE VELOCITY?

* DO WE WANT TO MOVE SLOW, MEDIUM, OR FAST INTO OUR FRONT FOOT LANDING?

* IS THE THROWING HAND ON THE CURVEBALL INSIDE OR OUTSIDE OF THE THROWING ELBOW?

* DO WE NEED STRAIGHT UP AND DOWN POSTURE OR ANGLED POSTURE IN OUR APPROACH TO BALL RELEASE?

* WHERE SHOULD OUR THROWING ELBOW BE IN RELATION TO OUR THROWING SHOULDER UPON THE FRONT FOOT LANDING FOR MAXIMUM HEALTH OF THE ARM, ACCURATE CONTROL, AND MAX VELOCITY.

* WHEN WE LAND WITH OUR FRONT FOOT, SHOULD OUR NOSE BE BEHIND OR IN FRONT OF OUR BELLY BUTTON?

* IS THE ARM AT LANDING MOVING FORWARD OR STILL LAYING BACK?

* WHEN THE PITCHERS LEAD LEG LANDS, SHOULD HIS BODY KEEP MOVING TOWARDS HOME PLATE?

* DO WE WANT TRUNK FLEXION FORWARD AFTER BALL RELEASE?

* IS OVERPOWERING VELOCITY ABOUT GREAT ARM STRENGTH?

* DOES BODY ALIGNMENT AFFECT VELOCITY AND CONTROL?

THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE MANY ASPECTS OF PITCHING MECHANICS THAT CAN ONLY BE IDENTIFIED AND CORRECTED WITH VIDEO ANALYSIS BECAUSE OF THE SPEED OF THE BODY MOVING TO DELIVER THE BASEBALL. REMEMBER, THE VIDEO CAMERA DOESN'T LIE.
