- Proper elbow placement is one of the essential elements of a pitcher’s mechanics.
- Not only does keeping the elbow in correct alignment with the shoulder allow for greater arm action (i.e., velocity) and control, but more importantly, the proper technique can prevent injury.
- The pitcher’s elbow should be parallel with the shoulder, or a bit above parallel—this goes for three-quarter and even sidearm arm slots.
- Have the pitchers develop the feel—have them drop the elbow below parallel with the shoulder and rotate the arm so they can feel the limitations it causes.
