Become a complete pitcher. The little things often get forgotten about, when in reality all those little things make you a well rounded pitcher that can get guys out.

Track the ball all the way to your glove. Be deliberate and focused with your eyes and your body will follow. #hitting #baseball #focus
Creates great coil around the rear leg. Focus on what his belt buckle does.
Being in the gym, coaching boxing and striking for mma has been my life now for a while now but people that know me and grew up around me, know what my passion has always been......#baseball
. I am 35 years old and it’s been a good 15 to 17 year that I have been on that field playing at a competitive level. With all my injuries I wouldn’t be able to even handle softball but Every couple years I get to go in the cage and see what I can do . Special thanks to the crew @dbatindiantrail
for letting @von_wcg
and myself have some fun. If you are in Indian Trail or neighboring areas you need to check out this facility . I was like a kid in a candy shop. The old man can still get around on a fastball in the 80s. Next time I’ll see if I can handle the 90s. I can’t wait to see Cruz play baseball when he old enough. #espoboxing #baseball #hitting #cages #fastball
Barrel Tip ➡️ Barrel ↩️... Three greatest swings ever?
Another south jersey guy making a name for himself in the Bigs! Former Mercer CC standout Heath Fillmyer now with the KC Royals. So many great moves in this delivery. Check the back leg move, check the position at front foot strike, check the arm spiral, and lastly check the front leg bracing. This guy throws 🔥🔥. #SouthJersey #Royals #ThrowGas @hfillmyer08
Here’s my breakdown of Max Scherzer’s mechanics- .
Glute Load- Scherzer does a great job of engaging his back leg. What I mean by that is he stays connected to the rubber for a long time while keeping his knee more over the rubber instead of caving his knee immediately (more quad engagement).
Hip/shoulder separation- I actually think Max could have better separation but he makes up for it with his rotation. See how much separation you can get between your hips being open and your shoulders being closed. .
Front leg stabilization- he does an incredible job of bracing his front leg and allowing his upper body to propel over his front leg. Think of this as hitting the curb on your bike and your upper half flying over the handle bars. If my knee bends into release I’m not going to maximize my extension and rotation.
Rotate around leg- remember that pitching or throwing in general isn’t a linear movement, it’s a rotational movement. Max does a great job rotating around a firm front leg to maximize velocity. Falling off to the side of the mound as a by product of rotating well isn’t a bad thing. It doesn’t always mean you are flying open.

When working on front leg bracing these are a must. Watch the hip snap as the ball is being released. A great way to feel weight being transferred from back leg to front. Your front leg is only as good as your back, back leg can only be as good as your front. Demonstrated by the legend of @benbradt #LegBracing #FuelOnly #WeightTransfer

MVP Approach - square it up oppo 👀 Hate the Sox but this swings too crispy to not put up. 🥓 Everything is money here - balance , behind the baseball, driving the pitch where’s it’s thrown, seeing it out of the arm slot with two eyes , excellent extension, hips are igniting ⚡️ the BELT BUCKLE , being calm and not trying to do too much. I mean it’s a sweet stroke. 💰 #baseballmechanics #baseballlife #hitting #hittingpost #mlb

Even though Baez swings the crap out of the bat, notice how his head stays still once he gets to front feel plant. By keeping a quiet head and spine position at launch, the rest of his body can rotate and power the swing. I love how Baez blends aggressive movement with control.

motion works n both tri nd lats (do it slowly for more fatigue to occur n tri muscle )😎😎😎
