The Pause and Balance – Pitching Drill

Fastpitch Drills

This drill is effective for the pitcher who “rushes” her motion, falls forward too soon, has trouble getting “on top” of the softball into a high ¾ arm slot, or is imbalanced in the balanced position.

The pitcher starts through her full wind-up without the ball.

When she gets to the balance position, she should stop, hold, turn her head and wait for the coach to hand her the softball.

The coach should vary how quickly he hands her the ball, anywhere between 3-5 seconds.
Once the pitcher has received the ball from her coach from the balance position, she turns her head again and throws to the target, emphasizing a good follow through.
