How To Throw More Strikes - What does your head do during the delivery?
As a pitcher, one of if not the most important thing we can do in our delivery to be able to throw strikes and command the baseball is to keep our head still and our eyes level.
During our delivery, we want to make sure that our chin stays behind our belly button which allows us to stay on our back leg longer and generate more power during our delivery.
When we keep our head still and our eyes level, it gives us the ability to see our target and to focus on where we want to throw the baseball. The baseball wants to follow our eyes. When moving our head around or what I refer to as head slamming, then we lose our release point and it becomes very difficult to throw the baseball where we want to. Make sure and keep your head still and your eyes level.
