Took a lighter day today. I wanted to get some mechanic work in today before my game, but not wear myself out.
Just one 9 inning game tomorrow. Still preseason. I should be throwing some of the game. I haven't heard for yet, but I see no reason why I wouldn't.
My new focus that I tried a lot to work on today was to stay more upright as my front leg went down. I had tinkered with this before and it has gone away from me as I had tried to nail down other things.
It was easy to implement into my mechanics, so I don't foresee this being a complicated adjustment.
Another adjustment I'm working on making is extending my front leg out straight as I drive forward. I noticed that I cut down my stride a little bit by not doing what I see most MLB'ers doing.
That adjustment is a little harder, but something that I can do. It's about doing it everytime.
In the video I'm going to post, I will have my last baseball throw and then a dry rep I did after it.
I liked my dry rep much more than my ball rep. My dry rep features a better position at footplant, a better position of separation, and a better leg drive.
I wasn't throwing 100% with the baseball, so my leg drive with naturally improve as my intent increase. With that throw, I was focusing on staying tall as my leg desecended and stay closed at footplant.
I do a decent job of it. But I'm look at my dry rep more and look to work towards those.
Let me know what you think!
