Coach Chuck Hernandez shares a tip with us on good direction in this segment. Pitching is about straight lines, yet we want to make sure the ball has good life and movement on it down in the zone. Making sure that you are not working against your body when delivering the pitch is important, it can help with accuracy as well as keep your arm healthy. If you are having trouble with your direction to the plate, draw a line from the rubber to the plate in the dirt and strive to land close to that line. It all boils down to be efficient and maximizing what our bodies will allow us to do.
