How to find your "natural" arm slot for pitching
All five, of course, describe common arm slots for baseball pitchers. I pitched high three-quarters. But which one's correct? They all are! It just depends on which comes most natural for you.
Want to know what that is? Here's how to find out with a simple baseball pitching drill. Two people are needed: the pitcher and a coach or another player.
The pitcher stands in the outfield. The coach can stand behind the pitcher's mound with a bucket of baseballs and a fungo. The coach hits baseballs into the outfield (on a hop) slightly to the right or left of the pitcher. The pitcher should field the baseball as an outfielder would, take a crow hop, and make the throw. However the the pitcher throws the baseball is his natural arm slot.
Which one are you?
