Teaches pitcher to complete a full arm circle when pitching.
- Pitcher stands with a ball and glove.
How it Works
- Pitcher starts with arm down, wrist cocked, fingers pointed toward the catcher.
- Arm swings back. Arm comes forward, wrist rotates so fingertips are toward the ground.
- Ball goes up to the sky. Then it comes back down, elbow goes into waist and pitcher executes the wrist snap.
- Complete 3 sets of 10-15 wrist snaps.
- Wrist should be cocked all the time to the wrist snap.
- Drill can be run into a wall as well as into the glove.
- Have beginning pitchers run this drill and the previous three for 3 to 4 weeks before they ever take the mound to prevent injury and keep them from developing bad habits.
- Tell pitchers to imagine a wall in front of them and the ball is the chalk and they are using it to draw a circle on the wall.
