I'm hearing more and more guys talk about their pull down velocity but it is way off from their pitching velocity. These guys throw all winter just doing pull downs but never get on a mound to see how it translates. It also changes the mechanics of the throwing motion versus pitching mechanics.
Training guys are selling them on the fact that college scouts want to know their pull down velo but I've never heard a college scout ask or care about pull down velo. Is it just me, have I missed the boat? Or just a money grab?
I would also add if anyone has experience. How do you change their mechanics back after they take 2 months of throwing pull downs back to pitching mechanics? The two don't seem to work well together.
