Please I Beg You, Quit Doing Pitching Drills Right Now.
Until you can tell me exactly how that drill is making you a better pitcher, quit doing it.
Almost every pitcher I talk to can’t explain why they do certain drills or how it is supposed to help them become a better pitcher.
If the Pitcher does NOT know why they are doing it…the drill is useless.
The No. 1 Reason Pitchers Suck is because they don’t THINK like a Pitcher.
I know that’s harsh, but it time to wake up.
So many parents and pitchers are spending crazy money on coaches that are teaching them garbage.
The reason most coaches do drills is because they don’t know how to practice pitching.
Pitching isn’t like any other sport, you can’t go practice until your arm falls off.
So !#%&* coaches have pitchers do useless drills so they can keep them coming back for more lessons and spending more money.
If you want to become a good pitcher…
Learn what pitching is.
Learn how to think like a pitcher.
Learn what makes up good pitching mechanics. (I Promise it’s not drills)
Drills were only meant to help explain how pitching mechanics work, not turn pitchers into mindless robots.
If your Coach has you doing drills and if it doesn’t make sense why you’re doing them please email me or leave a comment below and tell me what you’re doing and I will tell you if it is a waste of time.
I know sounds crazy, but learning how to pitch in a real game takes real pitching practice.
If your arm only has so many throws in it, Make them all count.
It’s really simple. Pitchers need to Think. Practice. Pitch.
Please share this with anyone you know that is killing themselves with useless drills.[addlink url=”http://pitchinghabits.com” text=”Do You Have the Mental Makeup Pro Scouts Look For?”]
