Pitching Drills: Backside Drive Drill
Backside Drive Drill
Use a rubber resistance band approx.. 8 feet in length with a loop at one end so the pitcher can place the loop slightly above the pivot leg knee.
Place the pitcher in a proper cocked position, ball in hand. The pitcher should throw, focusing on violently driving the back knee forward and inward. The stride leg will brace and the hips will come up over the stride leg.
This drill teaches the pitcher how to get his backside into a pitcher which creates more angular velocity and pitch velocity.
