The Secret to Velocity - What Should Your Landing Leg Do?
In this video, Chris talks about how important the landing leg is in the pitching delivery. There are a lot of issues a pitcher can have in his or her delivery that can kill their velocity. The position of the landing leg is one of the main issues a pitcher can have in their delivery.
When a pitcher strides out and lands on their landing leg, we need some bend in the knee to absorb the energy that is created in the delivery. When the upper body starts to go forward, the landing leg begins to brace and straighten out to give us something to throw against. You can see how this works by watching the video we have created.
