Introduction

Good Softball players are not born, they are developed.

We have often seen that pitchers, even those who have extensive experience, have often learned a “wrong” way of doing some part of the pitching motion or delivery, and consequently might have developed habits that can limit their ability and success…or even cause injuries. In many areas of pitching there is no “right” or “wrong” way of doing something, but instead a method needs to be chosen that best fits a pitcher’s personal ability and comfort-level.

However, with the fundamental “mechanics” of pitching, most qualified pitching instructors will agree that most of what we have listed below are the recommended procedures.

IMPORTANT: There are a lot of steps to learn here. Don’t try to perfect all of them at once. Take things one at a time. Nobody learns the basic mechanics overnight…take plenty of time to learn and practice each step.
