- The Fall Back Drill promotes an exaggerated technique that will ultimately help the pitcher create resistance when pitching.
- Like the previous drills that focus on creating resistance during the delivery, the pitcher should remember to get out in front with the lead foot, keeping the head in the middle, which will generate a proper angle with the hips.
- The emphasis of the Fall Back Drill is that the pitcher being the back calf muscle into the front calf muscle, and then falls back, landing on the back foot.
Don’t focus on the proper fielding position during this drill. The idea is to create muscle memory and build resistance.
- Pitch first, field second!
