Offseason Throwing Programs

Jonathan de Marte

Offseason throwing can be confusing for young pitchers, and it can be hard to structure a plan that helps increase velocity, mechanics, and arm health. I share my findings after putting a group of pitchers through an offseason throwing program I wrote, and share some insights into what I have learned on the matter through my own career.

Back Foot Connectivity In Pitching

Jonathan de Marte

For my first pitching article, I wanted to explore a part of the delivery I have struggled with in my career that I focused a lot on in my offseason training to fix. Keeping your back foot connected to the release of the ball is an important part of a pitcher’s delivery, and I explain why and how to achieve it.
