Broken Arrow Pitching Lessons | Pitching Sequence
When you get pitching lessons you need to be sure you are getting the best bang for your buck. Find a solution that will help you become a better pitcher both in terms of body sequence and pitch sequence. There are a lot of injuries in the game of baseball and a lot of it has to do with pitcher not having a food foundation understanding of how to throw first. The sequence in which you move is important in effortlessly transferring energy and letting your body work as designed. When you can learn how to do this in addition to proper arm care and proper recovery you have a chance to throw hard softly. This has to be the first part of the process, getting your mechanics to work while throwing. I tell guys at younger level, do not even think of it as pitching, just think of it as throwing the baseball. Pitching is understanding what to throw when to throw with a sole purpose of getting hitters out. But when it comes to finding quality Broken Arrow Pitching Lessons you need to see if they are teaching your pitching arm care, sequence, recovery, in addition to learning how to pitch and get hitters out.
When we start our process with our pitcher we start with their arm action and how they move. The order in which they move is important so we spend a lot of time getting kids to realize that pitching starts in the hip and the ability to hold the hip and make the hip tighter is what eventually causes rotation and when rotation happens the rest of the body just falls into place. This is a move that lets the sequence happen, this is move that takes time to master, but when they master this, a lot of good thing follow it. From there we are focusing on their arsenal and getting guys out. We trying to get all of our pitcher to have 2 different type of fastballs with different speed, then we try to work on getting some movement out these fastball, then we try and get a change up in with braking ball. We are looking to develop a fastball that is two different speed, one that you throw consistently faster and one that you throw consistently little bit slower. When using the effective velocity approach we want to throw the slower fastball in the negative zone and the fast fastball in the positive zones. If we take the effective velocity approach and just have these two fastballs, we can get a lot of hitter out. We are the very few that give Broken Arrow Pitching Lessons that goes over this in a systemic way.
When you think about pitch sequence, we are trying to get the hitter off balance, be early or late, or freeze up or swing and miss. We use the negative positive approach to getting hitter off balance and get their timing off to be either early or late. We use the movement of the ball going from out of the zone and back into the zone as and approach to freeze the hitter up, and last we use pitches that start in the zone and go out of the zone to get swings and miss. This only works when you develop the pitches that will allow this to happen, both speed wise and movement wise. When you can develop these pitches, speed wise and movement wise then you will be on your way to start using these pitches to effectively get hitters off balance, mess their timing up causing them to be earlier or later, get them to freeze on pitches you move back over the plate, and swinging and miss pitches that start in the zone and works its way out of the zone. The way to develop pitches and get movement is making sure that the pitcher knows exactly what type of spin should be created and what type of movement it will make. When this understanding happens then they have to understand how their balls moves so they can pick a focal point of where they want it to move base on where they want it to end up. If a curve ball at the glove works its way to the bottom of the zone then a ball throw at the waist high will end up at the knees, it the ball is thrown in the lower part of the zone then the ball will be in the dirt. There are all very good pitches base on the count, situation, and the hitter. We pitch based of the last pitch, we are not going to be perfect and make every pitch where we want it. Pitchers make a ton of mistake but the goal is to work off that last pitch to gain a competitive advantage over the hitter. If you throw a fastball down the middle then you have great leverage over how you want that at bat to go given that they have not swung the bat yet. From here you can choose to add speed to throw them off or subtract speed with a different grip on the ball. And you keep playing that game. We want to be able to throw different speed each pitch and we do that with understanding positive and negative zones and understanding what pitches you throw to help you get hitters out. When you discover this little process you now go from a pitcher that just throws the ball to a pitcher that is now pitching. When you are pitching you are now getting hitters our and you are doing so purposely rather then going at it blindly. This is the big problem with coaches calling games. They are not able to throw based of their last pitch which is how you should setup you next pitch along with see how the hitting is responding at between pitches.
