I hope you consider what I said. It was a suggestion, that suggestion has had proven healthy success, your way may have plenty of that also. More than one way to train up a pitcher in my estimation.
I recommend that pitchers be able to efficiently and with success deliver a baseball, in order to do that it is important to address all angles as you advance.
quote:I am not advocating that they get out there in games and throw as hard as they can.
There has never been such a thing as a pitcher who at one point or another doesn't giddy up their fastball with the intent of throwing it harder. It is those times that build velocity. Similar to a weight lifter, if he never tries to lift more, he never will be able to.
No doubt but a lifter who is unprepared to go for his max is just as foolish as a pitcher who on a competitive level is unprepared to go for his. Without it there alot of potential downside.
