    Great article as usual Paul…

    One of or perhaps the hardest thrower of all time, Nolan Ryan, was a ‘short armer’. I have put own arm in that position and I feel the stretch of the triceps. Seems that by his short arming, he was able to gain some added velocity. Supports the theory that loading/unloading or stretch/shortening cycles play a large role in throwing a baseball. And this loading/unloading can help generate more momentum.

      Ed, stay tuned for part 3….. 😉

    I just love the simulations. Can you somehow show a simulation that shows both the complex pendulum action of the relationships between the upper body rotation and the lower arm moving “around” the elbow joint with the timing of the upper arm going from external rotation to internal rotation?

  3. Great article and insight. The evolution of pitching as seen through today’s technology is incredible. 20+ years ago when I was in the Minors most of this conversation, if any, would have never happened.

    Paul I appreciate your work and point of view.

Plug your velocity leaks and see instant velocity gains. Your pitchers will FEEL it never forget it! Drills so simple anyone can use them. Good for any age.
