Reply to "Updating the Windup vs. Stretch debate"

I am sure all schools are different.  PC at son's school (LSU) has no preference.  Our Saturday starter pitches purely from the stretch.  He was mainly a bullpen guy his first two years.  I remember him pitching out of the windup, but at some point last year he went strictly to the stretch all the time.  I can remember the TV guys specifically pointing this out.  I just think he feels it simplifies his motion.  Has zero affect on his velocity.  Our Friday night guy is sort of a modified windup / stretch motion.  Has a very small step.  My son is pretty similar to this.  He does throw from the windup, but has a very small step.  Not sure this helps you, but to Buckeye's point, I think each pitcher is different.  Like I said, the one starter we have that pitches exclusively from the stretch throws 92-94 which is where he was last year when pitching from the windup.
