Pitching Mechanics - Flat Ground Slide Step
In the continuation of the flat-ground pitching mechanics series, coach Mike shows how to develop a quick and efficient but powerful delivery to the plate from the stretch position by using the flat ground slide step drill. Once again, these simple but very effective drills are designed to eliminate additional stress to the throwing arm by staying off the mound, while allowing a pitcher to create seamless mechanics through maximizing repetitions. The best part? No need waste valuable throws due to the overall emphasis on the movement more than the pitch... so there is NO BASEBALL REQUIRED!
After his Junior year at the University of Central Florida, Mike was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2005 MLB Amateur Draft by the Chicago Cubs. Mike spent 3 years in the Cubs organization. Mike presently is a high school pitching coach in Florida where he has had a major impact on producing collegiate talent with strong pitching fundamentals.
