Sample Pitching Drill Video- Connection Ball Drill

Along with getting a video breakdown of your mechanics, when you sign up for online lessons you also will be given a new drill each video you send!

Check out the Connection Ball Drill video below to get an idea of the kind of drills you can expect from Kyle, alongside BR Pro, Zack Littell:

Connection Ball Drill

The drills allow throwers to focus on hip and shoulder separation while maintaining a shorter arm circle by staying connected. Many throwers I see have a tough time not only creating hip shoulder separation but maintaining that separation through footstrike.

I have throwers start with a stride and stop in order to check their posture, make sure the throwing elbow is in line with their shoulder plane, and ensure they have created good separation. 

Once, throwers are able to stride and stop properly we move into the stride and throw portion of the drill. I use a variance of weighted plyo balls from 5oz to 1lb depending on what I am trying to get the thrower to feel. The main focus of the throw should be to get both the plyo ball and the connection ball to hit the plyo board, what you want to avoid is the thrower pushing the ball.

3 Things this Drill Helps Pitchers With

3. Hip/Shoulder Separation


Tap for More Info

A hip/shoulder separation is how throwers create tension across the leading to the ability to produce higher velocity.

2. Arm Connection



Tap for More Info

Staying connected to the body leads to higher velocity, better timing, and consistency of throws.

3. Posture



Tap for More Info

Maintaining good posture (explained in the first video) simply leads to better overall mechanics, young throwers tend to lean back early which affects the entire throw.
