- Pitchers tend to turn their back foot during the drive toward the plate, which creates a crow hop: illegal pitch.
- Coaches can use this Pivot Foot Drill to correct the issue, using a softball to help the pitchers see if they’re dragging their back foot correctly.
- Set the ball in the middle of the rubber, with the pitcher placing their drag foot (arm-side) next to the ball: this will promote keeping the drive toward the plate over the top of the toe.
- Focus on the mechanics: only introduce throwing a ball when the pitcher is ready.
