The Ball Knee Drill – Pitching Drill

Sponsored By SoftballJunk.com

Fastpitch Drills

This drill promotes balance.

Stand in release position.

The pitcher raises her stride knee off the ground (thigh parallel to the ground and calf perpendicular to the ground).

She balances her weight on the pivot leg.

The pitcher then extends her throwing arm over her left thigh and knee, with her glove arm over her throwing arm.

She then pushes her glove arm and throwing arm towards the catcher while pushing out with the stride leg.

The pitcher performs a full arm circle while striding forward, releasing the ball, completing the follow through.

Repeat this drill 15 to 20 times.
