And it's not your pitcher's fault either.
Most amateur coaches have only a vague idea on how to teach this difficult skill.
And with all the different opinions on the "right technique" for developing proper windmill pitching mechanics, it's almost impossible to figure out on your own.
But here's the bad news. You're the coach. People expect you to know this stuff. And the pressure is on.
Your pitchers are desperate to improve and need your help.
Their parents are impatiently watching from the sidelines.
And your competition is ready to jump all over your weak pitchers and embarrass your team if you give them the chance.
The good news is - learning the art and science of pitching isn't as hard as it looks.
With the right drills and some consistent workouts, even the rawest beginner can develop the proper mechanics, learn to consistently fire strikes with precise command and control, and become a dominant force on the field.
But - like most "real" coaches in the trenches - you don't have time to read through dusty old textbooks on the "Science of Pitching," or attend some overpriced coaching clinic halfway across the state.
That's OK. This is what I do, so help is on the way.
