Pitching: Here are some real basic tips to pitching

Follow these steps for proper pitching

Location, location, location! You need to teach your pitchers that location is the key to being a succesful pitcher. Get ahead of the hitter with a first pitch strike and from there locate your pitches to good locations. Pitchers who get ahead, locate and throw strikes will see large amounts of success.

Starting position - (Wind up and Stretch)

Rocker Step - (Coming "set" when in "Stretch")

Pivot - (Foot is square or toe slightly in front of heel)

Balance Point - (Eyes locked on target)

Power Position - Arm, head, chest, lower half positions

Throw - Release out front, proper direction

Ready Position - Become fielder after release
